Gender and Language is an international peer-reviewed academic journal for language-based research on gender and sexuality from feminist, queer, and trans perspectives. The journal features research on the social analytics of gender in discourse domains that include institutions, media, politics and everyday interaction.

The journal is a published four times annually by Equinox Publishing on behalf of the International Gender and Language Association. The journal's editors-in-chief are Rodrigo Borba (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro), Kira Hall (University of Colorado Boulder), and Mie Hiramoto (National University of Singapore).[1]

As a point of departure, Gender and Language defines gender along two key dimensions. The first dimension is that, gender is a key element of social relationships that are often loosely linked to perceived differences between women and men. Gender relations are ideologically encoded in linguistic and symbolic representations, normative concepts, institutions, social practices, and social identities. Second, gender is a primary arena for articulating power in complex interaction with other dimensions of social difference and identity, such as class, race, ability, age, and sexuality. Gender is understood as multidimensional, always changing, and often contested.

The journal features research employing a range of different approaches towards understanding what gender is, among them applied linguistics, conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, critical discourse analysis, discursive psychology, embodied sociolinguistics, ethnography of communication, interactional sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, linguistic landscapes, pragmatics, raciolinguistics, social semiotics, sociophonetics, stylistics, symbolic interactionism and variationist sociolinguistics.

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2020 Journal Impact Factor (JIF) of .976, and a Journal Citation Indicator (JCI) of 0.76. The journal has a 2020 CiteScore of 1.2, an SRJ of 0.413 and a SNIP of 1.166.[citation needed]
