YourTerm FEM: A Terminological Database to Enable Communication about Women’s Rights Beyond Borders
YourTerm FEM focuses on a wide range of women’s rights issues and contributes to gender equality by enabling fourth-sector professionals to communicate about these issues during humanitarian missions.
YourTerm FEM will culminate in a terminological database containing concepts that are crucial to Translator Without Borders and other fourth-sector organisations whose members need to address women’s rights issues. Already containing 70 terms in 3 languages (English, French and Spanish), this multilingual database will soon be available in 9 languages: Arabic, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. It will include terms pertaining to issues such as domestic violence, sexual violence, gender-based discrimination, economic justice, pay equity, women’s health, reproductive and justice rights, women’s representation in the media and global feminist issues.
Gender equality is a global priority. The goal of YourTerm FEM is to provide four-sector professionals with a solid terminological solution that will enable them to work towards the empowerment of women and the pursuit of gender equality around the world. The message is clear: women and men must benefit from equal access to opportunities, and for that we need clear and accessible terminology.
