Chairman, chairwoman, chairperson or chair? Housewife or homemaker? What is so controversial about contraception, the word ‘family’ or using the term ‘sex worker’? How are gender equality and gender parity different? What exactly is a transgender? Does being gender-sensitive in news mean hiding the genders and sexes of people who appear in them?

Whether you’re a journalist, writer, researcher or a news consumer, some gender-related words are bound to have found you wondering about whether, or how, to use them, or what they really mean. This third edition of the IPS-Inter Press Service Gender and Development Glossary offers journalists and writers a guide for picking their way through the sometimes tricky terrain of gender, media and development, and the use of gender-related terms and language in media.

It has a glossary section that takes users through the meaning and nuances of 141 key terms in gender and development, and a list of troublesome terms and alternatives that are useful in newsrooms and other publication venues. Done from a media mindset by IPS, a news agency that focuses on development, this book is a handy tool for journalists and editors. It is also a contribution to getting gender-sensitive language and gender issues included in news stylebooks, as well as easy reference for writers in general.
