mechanics of how this would work. We could do it, but reforming WMF is

Every year we see many expensive surveys and funded research on women
and Wikipedia, so presumably there are some verifiable statistics to
support Jane's assertion that a significant difference between readers
of Wikipedia is that men are significantly more likely to own or have
access to a desktop compared to women that they might edit from.

Can someone provide a link to the research that demonstrates this is
more than apocryphal?
