Like "women", womxn refers to females, but it is an attempt to get away from patriarchal language. The spelling stems from a longstanding objection to the word woman as it comes from the word "man". The term, “womxn,” is also used to include all cisgender, transgender, and gender fluid womxn, and to acknowledge the intersectionality of gender.
