Tara Murtha, Senior Writer for Philly Weekly, will discuss victim-blaming and how it is institutionalized in media coverage of sexual violence. The workshop will cite terminology and angles that perpetuate victim-blaming in discussions of legal cases, policy, popular culture; review the history of sex crimes in American press; and point to specific egregious examples in current media, as well as ways to intervene and prevent the phenomenon.
