The European Institute for gender Equality (EIGE)’s Gender Equality Glossary and Thesaurus is a specialised terminology tool focusing on the area of gender equality. It aims to foster a common understanding of gender equality terms across the EU and promote gender-fair and inclusive language to improve equality between women and men.
The collection of terms was based on 92 sources from the European Union, Council of Europe and United Nations normative and policy documents, studies, reports and scientific articles.
The glossary contains over 400 terms in English with their definitions and sources, and it will be available in all EU languages in the future.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
