The CGIS Brief

Thursday, January 20, 2022
3:00-3:30 PM
How do you translate, “they,” into French? For a group of men, “Ills,” and for a group of women, “Elles.” How do you refer to a group of people with a variety of genders in French? It’s still, “Ills.” But what about singular they? In French and many other gendered languages, there may not be official pronouns for those who don’t identify within the male/female binary. This brief explores gendered languages and provides tips on how to navigate language in an inclusive way.
