Gender Mainstreaming in the Language of Administrative Documents

Gender Equality
Duration:7/2014 - 11/2014

The subject of the project was to conduct an investigation in which Intraway identified, collected, analyzed administrative documents to investigate the use of language in the re-generation of gender stereotypes and prejudices. The analysis was carried out on three levels: a) grammatical, b) syntax, and c) semantic stereotypes within a documented methodological approach. In addition to the above, it was necessary to highlight specific examples through various Greek administrative documents and present semantic gender differences in language. The subject of the project was also the writing of a stand-alone guide through which Intraway made instructions, observations, recommendations, gave practical advice and specific suggestions related to the alternative use of concepts, intending to use non-sexist language, which, beyond changing linguistic expression, will seek to change attitudes and perceptions, as well as the help of the gender-related language fairly and impartially.
