The institutional commitment to ensure equal opportunities between women and men involves an active work of (re)construction of the gender category through the language used in politic and public communication. Starting from the recognition of gendered linguistic categories, it is possible to consolidate the underpinning socio-cultural changes and, only then, reflection on gender will acquire a substantial feature. The authors examine the reformist instance of the Spanish public language by presenting the "miembra case" which has generated a debate in language, socio-cultural and media contexts from 2008 until today. The theoretical framework of the work is represented by gender studies.
Keywords: Miembra, language and gender, spanish public communication
