Issues Tank | Episode 13: Locker Room Talk with Laura Ciolkowski

Categories: Featured.

IRWGS Associate Director Laura Ciolkowski discusses #RapeCulture on WFUV podcast “Issues Tank” (segment begins at 14:41)



We all know about the Access Hollywood tape of our president-elect. It also struck a nerve with some athletes who felt like Donald Trump disrespected the locker rooms they know. So this month, we decided to dive into what the locker room means to athletes, and the sorts of things they generally talk about.

But the tape also sparked a national conversation about language and sexism. Later in the episode, we explore the relationship between power, gender, and the words we use. Listen in!
