Use The Right Words: Reporting on Sexual Violence Awards Nominations
In the past year there has been an unprecedented focus on sexual violence in the media. From the Ghomeshi trial, Murder and Missing Indigenous Women, to campus sexual assault there is a strong interest from the public to have a dialogue on this important issue. The Canadian media has a powerful role in shaping conversations about sexual violence and influencing the way people think about the issue.
Let's celebrate insightful and challenging media reporting on sexual violence in the past year.
