The Australasian Menopause Society acknowledges that some individuals who undergo menopause do not identify as women. We are committed to inclusion and respect for our members, the patients we treat and the wider community.
Gender Language Policy
The Australasian Menopause Society (AMS) recognises gender diversity. In our publications, presentations, printed and digital materials, AMS uses the word “woman” (and the pronouns “she” and “her”) to refer to all individuals in the context of discussion of menopause. When describing or referencing study populations used in research, AMS will use the gender terminology reported by the study investigators.
