Do not refer to female pupils as 'girls' or 'ladies' because it 'reminds them of their gender', headteachers told

Do not refer to female pupils as 'girls' or 'ladies' because it 'reminds them of their gender', headteachers told | 21 Nov 2017 | Teachers should not refer to pupils as "girls" or "ladies" because it means they are "constantly reminded of their gender", the Government’s former mental health tsar has said. Natasha Devon told headteachers of the country's leading girls' schools that they should be using gender-neutral language when they address their students, and added that the same applied for boys. Speaking at the Girls' School Association's annual conference in Manchester, she said that she would "never walk into a room in an-all girls' school and say girls or ladies" because it was "patronising".
