Breaking the Binary: Exploring Gender in Language will be a discussion centered on the ways that the gender binary manifests in different languages. How do different linguistic rules affect how we think about gender? What alternative words and phrases can we use to combat binary-centric language? We invite people to share their own experiences with gendered language, whether in English or any other language.
