Writing Gender Neutral

In the late 1900's, writers began using gender inclusive language to make women part of the narrative.  For example, using "he or she" as a pronoun instead of only using "she".  In the 2000's, gender neutrality was extended to using pronouns like "they" to be considerate of people whose genders are neither male or female. Gender neutral writing has been adopted in journalistic and academic writing.  It is also relevant to business and legal writing.  Below are tips for gender neutral writing and resources for using it in briefs, contracts, corrrspondence, and other documents.. 

Tips
Pluralize the noun and use they as pronoun
Repeat a noun instead of using a pronoun
Use they as a singular pronoun
