Gender insensitive communications; Gender-sensitive language adaptation is at the start phase (Гендерно нечутливі коммунікації. Адаптація мови з урахуванням гендерних аспектів знаходиться на початковому етапі)

Language plays a key role in how we interpret the society and our place in the socium. Word choices often reflect unconscious assumptions about values, gender roles and the abilities of women and men. Thus, gender insensitive language is the cornerstone in development gender culture and tolerance. Which ways do you see to use the gender-sensitive language in the University?
