There is a nice initiative going on in our local community.

1) Fill "name:etymology:wikidata" within #openstreetmap for all streets named after a person.

2) Match this data with Wikipedia’s data, especially whether that famous person is male or female.

3) Show the % of streets named after male or female characters.

@bxl_forever is there a osmwiki page for that initiative, that one can share more easily?

@Joker AFAIK there isn’t.
This is a small initiative by a local non-profit, with the additional benefit of bringing new people to start using OpenStreetMap (like a mapathon).
They explain the idea on the registration page: eventbrite.co.uk/e/towards-equ

If it proves to be succesful, they should definitely write some documentation to encourage other local communities to do the same.
