Abstract:

The 1975 publication of Robin Tolmach Lakoff's "Language and Woman's
Place", is widely recognized as having inaugurated feminist research
on the relationship between language and gender, touching off a
remarkable response among language scholars, feminists, and general
readers. For the past thirty years, scholars of language and gender
have been debating and developing Lakoff's initial observations.

Arguing that language is fundamental to gender inequality, Lakoff
pointed to two areas in which inequalities can be found: Language used
about women, such as the asymmetries between seemingly parallel terms
like "master" and "mistress", and language used by women, which places
women in a double bind between being appropriately feminine and being
fully human. Lakoff's central argument that "women's language"
expresses powerlessness triggered a controversy that continues to this
day.

The revised and expanded edition presents the full text of the
original first edition, along with an introduction and annotations by
Lakoff in which she reflects on the text a quarter century later and
expands on some of the most widely discussed issues it raises. The
volume also brings together commentaries from twenty-six leading
scholars of language, gender, and sexuality, within linguistics,
anthropology, modern languages, education, information sciences, and
other disciplines. The commentaries discuss the book's contribution to
feminist research on language and explore its ongoing relevance for
scholarship in the field.

This new edition of "Language and Woman's Place" not only makes
available once again the pioneering text of feminist linguistics; just
as important, it places the text in the context of contemporary
feminist and gender theory for a new generation of readers.
