Gender Social Media Monitoring
Published on 29 July 2022
The Gender Social Media Monitoring Tool is a pilot initiative that leverages artificial intelligence technologies to track conversations on social media networks across categories relevant to gender-responsive policymaking: education, politics, reproductive rights, work, and violence. Supporting over 100 languages, the tool detects harmful content and hate speech against women and girls, an indicator of online gender violence and backlash against women’s rights and gender equality. It can also provide policymakers, civil society and practitioners with new data and insights to take action to address these backlashes.
The Gender Social Media Monitoring Tool is currently being piloted on Twitter and tested in Colombia, Philippines and Uganda with future plans to expand to other countries and include other social media platforms.
