Wikipedia can be a great resource to quickly find information on a wide range of topics. However, Wikipedia has struggled at times to address issues of gender and cultural bias. A 2011 survey of Wikipedia editors (aka Wikipedians) indicated that content is created by individuals who overwhelming identify as white (77%) and male (over 80%).
Disproportionate representation and resulting systemic biases may, some have argued have resulted in poor coverage of groups underrepresented in the Wikipedia community. In his article, "Wikipedia’s Women Problem" James Gleick details an episode where female authors were removed from a list of American Novelists on Wikipedia, and into a separate page for American female authors.
Search on the topic of intermarriage, using terms such as intermarriage, interracial marriage, or mixed marriage, in one of the subject encyclopedias above, then compare it to an article on intermarriage in Wikipedia: Interracial Marriage.
