How Language Helps Shape Our Response to Gender-Based Violence
Thursday, May 30, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
***Please note: Due to the overwhelming response to this workshop, we have moved this event to a larger space. The workshop will now be held in the Moot Courtroom at Albany Law School. Free on-campus parking will still be provided.***
This free and interactive session will explore the language of domestic violence and sexual assault: how we talk and write about these crimes. The workshop will discuss examples of the language often used and explore how to discuss domestic violence and sexual assault in a way that more accurately depicts the crime.
