9780044407669: Man Made Language

A feminist study of language and its rules argues that men have shaped it in order to instill their own prejudices and viewpoints on society, and shows how male-slanted language affects all women's lives.

From the Back Cover:

One of the great classics of the women's movement, 'Man made language' opened our eyes to the myriad ways in which the rules and uses of language promote a male, and so inherently partial, view of the world.

Spender also argues that since language is crucial to human-ness, it is through the patriarchal language that much of women's subordination is structured and maintained.

Often imitated, never replaced, 'Man Made Language' has become a cornerstone of modern feminist thought.

'A clever, lively and entertaining book. I have to admit she has a point.'
PHILIP HOWARD, 'The Times'
