International Women’s Day is a global day that celebrates the achievements of women. It’s a day that reminds us of the extraordinary power of women and all of the amazing work that can be achieved when women are part of the equation.
Unfortunately, the English language is a little behind the times when it comes to inclusivity. Our everyday language needs, well, a little help modernizing for the 21st century. It’s high time we mainstreamed inclusive language moving forward.
That’s why, in honor of International Women’s Day, we’ve partnered with Cesar Canine Cuisine to highlight ways that exclusive phrases permeate our everyday language. See below how we’ve made five phrases more inclusive.
1. To Empower Her
2. To Support Her
3. To Strengthen Her
4. To Lift Her Up
5. To Follow Her Lead
