– Creating Just Language –
Creating Just Language is a consciousness raising tool that makes suggestions for alternatives to the dominating and often exclusionary language used in both church and society today. It offers helpful examples and exercises for its readers to continue the effort in creating just language. Creating Just Language covers topics such as sexist, militaristic, racist, homophobic and exclusionary language. It promotes the language and thought of a “new” cosmology that reclaims and promotes the interdependence and interconnectedness of all life.
“Just language- language that reflects our changing consciousness about God, the universe, class, gender relations, race, disabilities and violence- is essential if we are to overcome the injustices and hatred that obstruct the peace, equality and harmony we long for.”– Kaye Ashe, O.P.
