November Membership Meeting & Discussion: Sexist Language

At this month’s membership meeting, join us for an informal discussion exploring sexism and misogyny in our everyday language. Do certain words and phrases make you, as a feminist, cringe? How does the way we treat sexist language compare to the ways we deal with other offensive language, such as racist or homophobic slurs? Where does sexism in language present itself in your life? Come share your thoughts and experiences on this topic, and find out more about YWTF: DC’s upcoming plans.
