Orwell's dictionary

EU moves to outlaw phrases such as 'man-made', 'manpower' and 'mankind' in favour of 'nonsense' gender-neutral terms under new PC guidelines for translators

  • Staff in Brussels told to reduce references to 'women or men' in a new rule book
  • New guidelines set out in Gender Neutral Language In The European Parliament
  • The document suggests words such as 'chairman' be replaced by 'chairperson'
  • Also advocates the avoidance of gender-specific pronouns such as 'he' or 'she'
