Glossary entry:

Sexism is prejudice or discrimination based on a person’s sex or gender identity. Sexism can affect anyone, but it is particularly documented as affecting women and girls, non-binary and trans persons. It has been linked to stereotyping and may include the belief that one sex or gender is intrinsically superior to another. Sexism appears in different forms and degrees. It ranges from small verbal comments, jokes or even compliments, to global issues of wage inequality.
