Language plays a key role in how we make meaning of the world. What is the language used to describe women and girls? How do they create an idea of who they are & their value? Reclaim language. Take control of women's representation. Change the story with reality. Ms. Re-Present!
Language plays a key role in how we make meaning of the world. They express our experiences, share how we feel, articulate our differences and connect our struggles and experiences.
The language used by all forms of media are powerful tools in the processes of meaning making. The language used in reporting tells us a lot about the assumptions that are made about people and their roles in society. The messages framed by the media shape the environment and spaces we inhabit, and contribute to the construction of norms, cultural ideas and stereotypes about gender.
