#Wikidata and #diversity

Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the best USA architects. When you look at his off spring, you will find only boys. When you read his article in English, you will read that several girls turned out to be an architect as well. He had several wives they too are not covered either in a Wikipedia article or as a Wikidata item.

As diversity is relevant, there is hardly an excuse to have only articles for the boy architects and not the girl architects. They are related to the same great man.

Addressing issues that have to do with diversity in Wikidata is easy and quick. It translates easy to many languages and cultures. It is an obvious way to address one item at a time.
