Toolkit on gender-sensitive communication

Developed by EIGE, the European Union’s Knowledge Centre on Gender Equality, this toolkit is an easy-to-use guide on how to use more gender-sensitive language. It is intended for policymakers, legislators, media and anyone with an interest in making their communication more inclusive.
