Inclusive language: Concepts, recommendations and resources

The use we make of language is always loaded with meaning. Therefore, it becomes a tool to recognize the rights of identities that have been historically invisible.

Our starting point is to understand that what is not named does not exist, that is, it sustains oppressive power relations that reproduce inequalities and injustices. Therefore, when we refer to exclusive linguistic uses, we want to explain how the use of the masculine gender in a neutral way limits what can be said.

The following document includes concepts and recommendations on linguistic use, with the aim of promoting inclusion and trying to overcome the totalizing character of the masculine and the binary of conventional language.
