A Victory for Gender-Neutral Language

The national anthem of Canada was changed this week to become a gender-neutral anthem. The line "in all thy sons command" was changed to "in all of us command." Bill 210 "An Act to amend the National Anthem Act (gender)" passed its third reading in the Canadian Senate on January 31, 2018. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly described the change as "another positive step toward gender equality."
