Gender-inclusive writing: beyond grammar

Gender-inclusive writing: beyond grammar

University of Sherbrooke Faculty of Law, Room A7-235

Seminar with Michaël Lessard, lawyer.

Language is a means for exclusion of women and non-binary people, and its damaging effect does not come solely from grammar. In the legal community, we continue to use problematic expressions, euphemisms, and turns of phrase, sometimes without even noticing, that leave a lingering taste of sexism. These types of linguistic sexism will be brought to light so that you can identify and avoid them.
