What do you think a content gap is, and what are some possible ways to identify them?

For this discussion, respond to at least 2-3 of the questions below that are provided by Wiki Edu.
Wikipedia aims to represent the “sum total of human knowledge.” Despite its millions of articles, significant content gaps still persist. This is especially evident in topics related to women, minorities, and other historically marginalized populations.
Several initiatives seek to address these content gaps, such as WikiProject: Women in Red and Art+Feminism.
The following discussion questions will help you to explore Wikipedia’s content gaps and help you understand how you can remedy them as a student editor.
