UK: University bans lecturers from using series of phrases that could be deemed sexist
Article here. Excerpt:
'Lecturers have been banned from using the phrases ‘mankind’ and ‘man-made’ as part of a university’s clampdown on ‘gendered language’.
Cardiff Metropolitan University says the ‘politically correct’ words should be used to ‘promote an atmosphere in which all students and staff feel valued’.
The rules are laid out in the institution’s Equal Opportunities Policy, which warns contraventions could result in disciplinary action.
It says ‘inclusive language’ must be used throughout all academic programmes to comply with the Equality Act as gendered words could be considered discriminatory.'
