Balls, chicks and crones
Why should it be positive for a woman when somebody says “she’s got balls”, while it’s hardly well-intended to describe a boy as “running like a girl”? That question is put by author and linguist Helene Uri in her prize-winning book Hvem sa hva?.
In this talk, she explains how language reveals our prejudices and expectations about ourselves and others. Questions will be invited from the audience.
The talk will be in Norwegian.
