As the global champion for women and girls, UN Women recognizes the importance of language in fighting gender bias and promotes the use of gender-inclusive language in all contexts and at all times. Gender-inclusive language refers to language that places both women and men at the same level, and which does not convey gender stereotypes.

Our searchable gender-inclusive lexicon below includes some 650 entries in English, French and Spanish. You can search it using the “Find a term” search, or alphabetically. Additional resources used by UN Women to ensure gender-inclusive language are available on the right menu.
