Stress Pronouns - Missing something here...

I got this exercise wrong on the qwiz, but I don't see any explanation in the A2 Stress Pronouns lesson on why you would use "elle" rather than "lui." Isn't "lui" supposed to be for either gender?

1________ devez prendre une décision. You and she need to make a decision.


Toi et lui was marked as incorrect, and Toi et elle was marked as the correct answer, but I don't understand why.

Bonjour Philip,

In French, you will use the stress pronoun "lui" (for a man) and "elle" (for a woman) when they're subjects of a sentence. 

Toi et lui = You and he

Toi et elle = You and she

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
