Multi-Gender Hebrew: Creating a New Space in the Hebrew Language
with Michal Schomer
Gender plays a very different role in Hebrew language structure than in English. We’ll explore some of the most pressing challenges and why it is so important to use Hebrew in an inclusive and gender-neutral way. Speaker, Michal Schomer, will discuss Multi-Gender Hebrew—a new set of Hebrew letters facilitating multi-gender reading and writing. Multi-Gender Hebrew makes women present in the Hebrew language and forms a linguistic space for non-binary identities.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Michal Shomer (she/her) has a B.Design degree in Visual Communication Design from Holon Institute of Technology (HIT). After publishing a free digital version of her Multi-Gender Hebrew letters, Shomer is now extending support for the project and gives lectures promoting gender equality.
