Use The Power Of Language To Convey The Truth – Wendy Murphy


Legal expert Wendy Murphy is devoted to helping victims of child abuse and sex crimes get the justice they deserve. After witnessing what she describes as horrific, systemic discrimination against these victims, Murphy, who has over 15 years as a professor of violent sex crime law, opened a pro bono service to help them.  Murphy joins Dr. Phil, where they discuss the need to celebrate those who report crimes -- not tear them down -- the power of language to convey the truth, and the need to overcome the “post-truth” world we live in, where what words “really” mean is up for debate. Also, listen to Murphy’s fascinating insights into the American legal system and the critical work we need to do as a country to make things right. This episode covers sexual assault and rape at length. Need support? National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org y rainn.org/es)
