GenderTerm: UN Women online resources on the use of gender-inclusive language
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 Arabic, English, French, Russian 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. These will be updated as necessary as the use of gender-inclusive language evolves.
Please feel free to use this searchable gender-inclusive lexicon and associated resources and share them widely among your peers. As this is a live document, should you have any questions or suggestions, or simply require further information, please contact .
