International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.
Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities.
SWS Council voted in 2018 to endorse International Pronouns Day. SWS is asking you to fill out this form that will allow you to indicate the pronouns that you would like for others to use in their citations of your work and in their interactions with you. Sociologists for Trans Justice (S4TJ) endorses this project and SWS is pleased to have S4TJ’s support. The goal is to honor this day and acknowledge the importance of using correct pronouns in interactions with one another to ensure everyone is included and respected within SWS.
This year, International Pronouns Day is October 16, 2019. You can see our organization’s name on the website here: https://pronounsday.org/endorsers
