Let’s talk Gender
Gender is a term often used but not very well explained or understood. Research highlights that gender means different things to different people. Some people see gender as the sex category a person is assigned to. Other people see gender as a personal belief. Some people see only two genders (female and male), other people see a wide variety of gender identities.
Having clarity about what we mean when we talk about gender is important to be able to have meaningful discussions and understand each other.
