UN Women Australia has stated that Australians should be saying ‘y’all’ instead of ‘ladies and gentlemen’ or ‘boys and girls’. 

The national brand of the global organisation tweeted an image of ‘gender-neutral dictionary’, urging people to replace common words such as ‘husband/wife’.

On their website, they urged Australians to use the terms ‘y’all’ or ‘folks’ when referring to other people to promote gender equality.

When discussing it on this morning’s show, Jonesy & Amanda had a lot of questions about these gender neutral words.

“Y’all? What are we in the Dukes of Hazzard now?” Jonesy asked.

He’s got a point, right?
