London AF Meeting on Language

The Power of Language

Masereel
We often take the language we use for granted, not aware of how it can be used to oppress and exploit us. In this meeting we will explore some of the ways that language is used to prop up systems of domination, whether this be at work, in the media or at home. We will also discuss how language is part of the oppression of groups e.g gender. We will look at how we can challenge the power of language and make it work for us rather than against us.
7pm, Thursday October 22nd, Freedom Bookshop, Angel Alley, 84b Whitechapel High Street, London E1 (nearest tube Aldgate East . Disabled access.
