Given that language not only reflects stereotypical beliefs but also affects recipients’ cognition and behavior, the use of expressions consistent with gender stereotypes contributes to transmit and reinforce such belief systems and can produce actual discrimination against women. In this project, we aim to reduce the use of expressions and approaches that have an approach of discrimination against women in the academic environment. We, therefore, would facilitate here the access to some tools that other projects or institutions make available for sharing terms, expressions, and their definition, that is commonly used.
