n., pl. -men.
A spokesman is someone who is asked to speak as the representative of an organization or group of people.
In the past, spokesman was used to refer to both men and women, but it is now hardly ever used to refer to women. A female representative is now usually referred to as a spokeswoman.
Spokesperson is a fairly new word which can refer to either a man or a woman.
