What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Getting more "female" issues and more female authors for Wikipedia.
What is your solution?
Stubs motivate people who know more about the issue. They are motivated to complete missing information and to adjust mistakes. Thus another trick: placing mistakes in the stubs knowingly.
Expand your idea
Do you want to submit your idea for funding from the Wikimedia Foundation?
The project manager will search for authors who write the stubs and for female experts who could complete the stubs. She/he will train the female authors in Wikipedia writing. She/he will launch press articles. Translators will translate German articles, f.i., to English and v.v.
- Project manager: 750 € for three months (May, June, July, 2015)
- Translators: 500 €
Must still be planned. There must be a platform for the authors who write the stubs.
A lot of stubs which continue to allure female authors.
Measures of success
Number of female Wikipedia authors. Number of articles in certain topics.
