Victim-Blaming in the Media, What it is & What You Can Do About It

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.
