Helping to raise awareness of women’s rights through appropriate terminology
Gender equality is a global issue that should be of worldwide interest. Although a lot has been done so far, there is still some way to go to achieve full equality of rights and opportunities between women and men. In order to make it possible, it is fundamental that people raise awareness of the problem and have the right means to talk about it.
YourTerm FEM focuses on a range of women’s right-related issues and contributes to talk about gender equality by providing a broad audience, including health professionals, researchers, policymakers, humanitarian workers, legal sector workers and ordinary citizens, with an accurate multilingual terminology.
Practically, this project aims to create a multilingual terminological database containing concepts that are crucial to address women’s right issues, such as domestic violence, sexual violence, gender-based discrimination, economic justice, pay equity, women’s health, reproductive and justice rights, women’s representation in the media and global feminist issues.
