Guidance for reporting on gender-based violence
We recognize there can be challenges in shaping narratives and educating the public about gender-based violence. Sometimes it can feel daunting to know what terms and phrases are acceptable, especially when addressing marginalized communities. We recommend these resources and hope you will find them useful in your work:
- Reporting on Gender-Based Violence: A Guide for Journalists — This 2020 publication from The Equal Press Project, which EVA BC advised, offers focused tip-sheets on four marginalized communities: LGBTQIA2+ folks, people with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, and migrants. In addition to the digital version, there are a limited number of hard copies available.
- Use the Right Words: Media Reporting on Sexual Violence in Canada — This 2015 publication from Femifesto and Collaborators provides checklists on respectful language, frameworks and imagery, tips on interviewing survivors of sexual violence, and more.
