The concept of gender-neutral language is one that's being learned by a lot of people, thanks to the changing times. According to ABC, this idea was borne out of breaking away from the social conditioning attached to certain things.
For example, people have used such words as 'fireman,' 'policeman,' 'chairman' and so on for many years. And while it has always been acceptable, it does give the underlying idea that only the male gender is recognized in these positions decades ago.
The purpose of adopting gender-neutral language is to ensure that professions and other similar age-old terms do not recognize just one gender in its name, thereby giving the idea that women can hold such positions too.
