A Chrome Extension that turns derogatory words, often directed toward women, into something lovely. For BuildHer 2018's Female Empowerment hack.
What we learned
iconw to build our first Chrome extension!
Problems we ran into
Currently, this iteration doesn't interpret language well, so different uses of these words are treated the same, even if they mean different things. In order to further develop this aspect, we would integrate natural language processing to determine if the usage of these instances is, indeed, offensive. The runtime is also lengthy, so we would find a more efficient way to load and find the words we want to replace.
