Please help counter systemic bias in Wikipedia.

"The Wikipedia project has a systemic bias that grows naturally out of the demographic of its contributors. This project attempts to fill in the gaps left by this bias, consciously focusing on those subjects and perspectives neglected by the encyclopedia as a whole. A list of articles that are in need of some attention may be found on the CSB Open Tasks list."

If you are interested in the meaning of my user name, :-) Anagnorisis means 'recognition' or 'discovery' or 'revelation' and it was originally the critical moment in a Greek tragedy leading to the denouement of a story. For example the recognition by the tragic hero of some truth about his or her identity or actions that accompanies the reversal of the situation in the plot. The discovery of such knowledge changes the conduct and actions of the hero, who now accommodates accepting his fate and adjusts his actions thus facilitating the upcoming outcome. A classical example of anagnorisis in Greek tragedy is when Oedipus finds the man he had killed was his father and that the woman he had married is his mother.
