Take wikipedia to "Place" where women are busy. . .
Yes, women are busy. I think they are busy at places which are also having lot of women. So making wikipedia available and relevant at these places will encourage more woman to look at it. In my neighborhood many women are in teaching at schools and lot of these schools says NO to wikipedia.

Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Women are busy and wikipedia needs to get share of their time and attention from this busy schedule.

What is your solution?[edit]

Wikipedia chapters need to have project to Identify "Places" where women are busy. Check if in these places wikipedia is available and relevant. There can be many articles related to these places which they can contribute to. Once they spend some of their "busy" time on wikipedia, encourage them to edit. Even a mentor can be attached to them.


Get Involved[edit]



  • Bringing Wikimedia projects to places where there are more women is an interesting idea. My guess is that this idea might linked well with idea Grants:IdeaLab/wiki_women --C.Koltzenburg (talk) 10:51, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
