Semantic Map of Sexism: Topic Modelling of the Everyday Sexism Content
This event took place on Monday 13 November 2017 at 11:30


The Everyday Sexism Project documents everyday examples of sexism reported by volunteer contributors from all around the world. It has reached 100,000 entries in 13+ languages within 3 years of its existence. The content of reports in various languages submitted to Everyday Sexism is a valuable source of crowdsourced information with great potential for feminist and gender studies. Hitherto there has been no large-scale computational study to analyse and map the content of the reports. In this talk we take a Natural Language Processing approach to analyse the content of reports. We will use topic-modelling techniques to extract the most evident topics and concepts related to sexism emerging from the reports. Sexism can materialise in different forms and shapes in different cultures and geographies. In this project we try to reveal the most common types of sexism and more importantly how they relate to each other.
