GDG Tech Sessions — GDG Lisbon Edition — Is rap misogynistic? From data to journalism
Is rap misogynistic? From data to journalism
Misogynistic language has been present in hip-hop for a long time, but can you quantify misogyny
Deep dive into Interruptor’s latest hit-article. To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, they analyzed more than 1100 lyrics of 40 Portuguese rappers. Using good old Python and Pandas, they demonstrated the pervasiveness of misogynistic terms in rap songs and addressed an almost-taboo topic in mainstream media.
Find out how to use data to support a good story. And how it can lead to better journalism.
