Taylor Swift song contest

Taylor Swift says she will record the very best "equal pay for equal work" pop song that others write. To vote on which one is best people listen to dozens of sample songs, advertising and readvertising the message.
  [vote for,

Taking my quality control standards from [JesusHChrist@halfbakery.com] I thought of something Taylor Swift could do. She could have a contest.

Because she is known for writing her own material, she could could generate shock and startlement when suggesting that she would record a cover. The cover has to concretely and efficaciously promote equal pay for equal work. (Perhaps the chorus is "got ovaries? ask for a raise"

What to do with the hundreds (or thousands) of contest entries? Have a website where people listen to the songs, which are automatically autotuned so they are more listenable. This has the effect of perhaps hundreds of thousands or millions of young women listen to propaganda urging them to be paid fairly. Ms. Swift has more than 6 billion Youtube views, so a 1/6000th response rate reaches a million people.

Sigh, I know, MFD, WIBNI and zero technology content.
