Glossary Feminism / Term


Relating to, composed of, or involving two things. When we use the term ‘binary’ in feminist discussion it is usually in relation to gender (i.e.: gender binary) and the limiting belief that there are only two genders. It is also often used to discuss gender stereotypes or characteristics typically seen as either male or female. People who are ‘non-binary’ don’t identify as female/male or a woman/man.
