What are gender pronouns?
Pronouns are used to refer to someone without using their name, in the English language the most common pronouns are ‘he’ and ‘she’. However, these are gendered pronouns and are used to refer to males and females. For people who don’t identify as either 100% male or 100% female, they may choose to have a gender-neutral/non-binary pronoun such as ‘they’ or ‘ze’.

Imagine how you would feel, as a woman, being referred to as ‘he’ in emails from your boss… Pronouns are as much a part of our identity as our names.You can't always know someone’s pronoun just by looking at them. Asking and correctly using someone's preferred pronoun is one of the easiest ways to show your respect for their gender identity. When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected and upset.
