The fact that “gender is an omni-relevant category in most social practices” (Lazar 2005: 3) lies at the very core of both gender and language studies as well as gender and translation studies. Gender issues have become entangled with language issues as the result of women’s movement in the west, especially since the 1960s when groups of feminists began to question linguistic sexism and other forms of “patriarchal language” that are hard to perceive in operation.
