Gender Inclusion in Feminist Language
Womxn? Women+? How do we use inclusive language when discussing what’s historically been known as “women’s issues”? Who are we including and why? Join Maybe Burke for an hour-long dive into inclusive language practices, the history and baggage that comes with some of the commonly heard alternatives, and a plan for best practices moving forward. If you want to be able to Identify when language is being used lazily or irresponsibly and be intentional and effective in your inclusion of trans and non-binary people in your feminism, activism, and advocacy – we’re here to help.
Participants will be given a better understanding of the ways different words signal inclusion or ignorance around trans and non-binary communities so that they can move forward in navigating and creating truly inclusive spaces.
Participants will be able to:
- Recognize when feminist language is being harmful or exclusionary to transgender and non-binary folks
- Accurately identify the best language to use in various different scenarios
