What will be the case when one thing is masculine and the other is feminine?

Ni l'un ni l'autre OR Ni l'une ni l'autre OR something else?

This relates to:
Ni l'un(e) ni l'autre ne ... = Neither [one nor the other] (negation) -

Much like ils/elles if the group is all female (or in your question both components are female) use l'une, otherwise for all male or mixed groups use l'un.
