Gender Equality and Inclusivity


Gender equality is a state in which people have access to rights or opportunities regardless of gender.

Gender-inclusive language is speaking and writing in a way that does not discriminate against a particular sex, social gender or gender identity, and does not perpetuate gender stereotypes. Given the key role of language in shaping cultural and social attitudes, using gender-inclusive language is a powerful way to promote gender equality and eradicate gender bias.
