This website sometimes uses the term "woman," "women," and female gendered pronouns "she" and "her" because most people in need of workplace accommodations and other support related to breastfeeding are women. It is important to recognize, however, that this population also includes people who do not identify as women, including some gender non-conforming people and some transgender men.
