Does language matter? – The Post and Courier

This week, the National Council of Churches was scheduled to hold a symposium called “Language Matters” in Chicago. The meeting was inspired at least in part by the perception that “the use of gender-inclusive language throughout our NCC member communion churches has declined,” the council noted in a news release last week.

The news was no surprise to Alison Piepmeier, director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at the College of Charleston.
