Sexism Check

To use the tool type a sentence or pick one of the pre-selected samples and click on the "Check!" button.

Explanation of the demo

Sexist language is defined as that which demeans, ignores, or stereotypes members of either sex. In this demo, we are offering a natural language processing (NLP) tool which uses a neural network trained on a dataset consisting of sexist and non-sexist sentences. The sexist sentences have been collected after extracting specific parts of the posts found at The non-sexist sentences have been collected from subtitles of the British soap operas Eastenders and Doctors. Therefore, the detected level of sexism essentially measures "how close (far away) the given sentence is to the above sexist (non-sexist) sentences".
