"Nobody's Victim: Language, Culture and Changes". A free public presentation with author and cultural critic R Clifton Spargo.
How do media representations of rape and abuse shape public attitudes? What role does language play as advocates and activists seek to frame the issue of sexual violence, while calling the public to action? Why is the creation of new forms of media so critical to challenging a world that too often allows, and even encourages, violence against women? How are survivors "taking the narrative back" through the sharing of their own testimonies?
