  1. Gender disparity for search term

    According to this article (https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/03/06/chart-the-percentage-women-and-men-each-profession/GBX22YsWl0XaeHghwXfE4H/story.html), the women to men ratio for models is approximately 2:1, but male models are rarely to be found for the query "model".

  2. Inappropriate auto-complete sentence for searching "chinese people"

    After keying in "chinese people" in the search bar, the second highest recommended auto-complete query returns "Chinese people eating dogs". This seems rather stereotypical and inappropriate. It would be great if someone can take a look at it!

  3. Searching "leaders" yields mostly (if not all) male leaders at top

    When I search for the term "leaders", yahoo's image search results feature world-renowned leaders who are mostly male. It would be appropriate to see either more women representation at the top of the rankings, or less association with gender all together.
