What is genCounter?
How does genCounter work?
- Upload a .txt file and genCounter will match the words in your file to the gendered language dictionary. It will then give the document a score based on the "genderedness" of the text in the document.
How was the gendered language dictionary developed?
See Gendered Language Dictionary
- Used Amazon's MTURK platform to crowdsource words that people perceived as masculine, feminine, or neutral that are common in politics.
- Participants gave these scores to each word on a 1-7 scale (closer to 1 is feminine and closer to 7 is masculine).
- As this was developed to examine political texts, this may not be appropriate to determine the "genderedness" of texts outside of the political domain.
