Despite decades of feminist consciousness-raising, sexist language still exists in our culture. Gender-specific titles and pronouns can subtly influence sexism as well as our thoughts and expectations about gender roles and appropriate occupations and goals for the sexes. Sexist language is language that excludes either men or women when discussing a topic that is applicable to both sexes. Sexist language includes using the word man to refer to humanity, and using titles like Congressman and fireman. Another common error that shows gender bias is assuming that the subject of all sentences is male.

Sex-selective abortion is the practice of terminating a pregnancy based upon the predicted sex of the infant. The selective abortion of female fetuses is most common where male children are valued over female children, especially in parts of East Asia and South Asia particularly in countries such as People's Republic of China , India and Pakistan , as well as in the Caucasus , Western Balkans , and to a lesser extent North America. Sex selective abortion was first documented in ,  and became commonplace by the late s in South Korea and China and around the same time or slightly later in India. Sex-selective abortion affects the human sex ratio —the relative number of males to females in a given age group,   with China and India, the two most populous countries of the world, having unbalanced gender ratios. Studies and reports focusing on sex-selective abortion are predominantly statistical; they assume that birth sex ratio—the overall ratio of boys and girls at birth—for a regional population is an indicator of sex-selective abortion.
