This page documents how people currently publish gender information on the web (sometimes implicitly - so not easily machine parsable - such as names (Andrew, Andrea), titles (Mr, Mrs, Miss), relationships (husband, brother), pronouns (he, she), etc.)), and what gender terms are supported by current web user interfaces. This research will hopefully be useful to the genealogy microformat effort, as well as efforts to extend vCard, and therefore hCard.



These examples are based on two primary sources of real world web site usage (e.g. on social network sites)

sites and services

Social network sites typically publish the gender of the individual.

Sites and services that allow users to enter and publish their gender. Please add to this list.
