What is the problem you're trying to solve?
There is a great lack of articles on social sciences from a female POV on Wikipedia.
What is your solution?
The Evangelische Hochschule Ludwigsburg (Protestant University of Ludwigsburg) offers a great array of social science courses and therefore has many female social sciences students. We'd like to offer a two-day workshop for those female students to learn how to participate in Wikipedia and become advisors and multiplicators within the university, students and alumni.
30 female students are supposed to become advisors and multiplicators on Wikipedia-related topics.
