Problem

Sexist language in employment

Other Names:
Sexually discriminating job terminology
Claim:
In many languages, there is no feminine equivalent term for the evidently masculine name describing many jobs usually held by men. As in many countries all jobs are now theoretically open to women, this discriminating terminology creates confusion and frustration.
