Sexism in Google Image Search

A simple google image search demonstrates the stereotypes produced and reproduced by tech. This video shows how an image search of Brazilian women almost 40% of the time displays images of young women in suggestive poses. In contrast, in an image search for german women, results of sexually suggestive content went down to 4%, and images were mainly of female politicians and athletes. It also suggests how in a search for Ukrainian women, an astonishing 60% of results are links to dating websites or websites with sexualized content. This short video calls us to question how AI and technologies like Google reinforce certain stereotypes and how this perpetuates a particular image of women.
