The second lecture of the fourth cycle of Somebody said feminism? dealt with a very important issue of gender sensitive language. We listened and talked about the issue with Ismeta Dervoz, representative in the Parliamentary Assembly of B&H in the mandate 2010-2014, and Sandra Zlotrg, lector from the Association Lingvisti. During the lecture and discussion, the lecturers talked about the ways for language to empower women in society.
