*The iHV has adopted a gender-additive approach to the language we use in policies, resources, projects, and events. A gender-additive approach means using gender neutral language alongside the language of womanhood, to ensure that everyone is represented and included. Please note that this publication uses gendered terms when referencing research which is gender specific.
