United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Turkey Office prepared a “Gender-Sensitive Communication Guide” with the aim to raise awareness on the importance of using gender-sensitive communication and challenging sexist stereotypes.

Gender-sensitive communication requires a comprehensive positioning and use of language and visuals contributing to the equal representation of women and men, equal benefiting from resources and opportunities, equal assumption of roles, protection of balance in decision-making processes, questioning stereotypes and mainstreaming gender equality.

In this guide, you may find tips for avoiding a sexist language that reinforces gender stereotypes and minimizing its negative effects on communication.
