Inclusive Langauge Guide

The language guide is divided into thematic sections, though many of the issues discussed intersect and some terms may be relevant to several categories. The guide is based on a set of Feminist Principles for Language Use, which you can find below. It gives examples of how you can put these principles into practice in your writing and in day-to-day conversation. It also includes phrases and concepts which we may not use much at the moment in our work and writing but which are important to understand in order to recognize and challenge intersecting power issues in our work.
