2022 Excellence in Visual Digital Storytelling, Large Newsroom finalist

Gender and language


About the Project

An illustrated and animated graphics story on how the movement to recognises a spectrum of genders is changing languages around the world.

The piece not only surveys more than 10 languages but includes stories from people around the world who have struggled with gendered languages. It also explains the science on the effect gendered language has on people and what mental health impact gendered language can have on people whose identities are not reflected in the language.
