Abstract:

>From slut-shaming to the allegedly shrill voices of female politicians, from
vocal fry to online misogyny, the language women use (and the language used
about them) is as controversial as it has ever been. Our language use and our
gender have an enormous impact on the way we understand ourselves and the
world around us, and the way we are treated by society. Using the latest
academic research, Allyson Jule tackles some of the most pressing issues
facing feminism today, including how language use and related ideas about
gender play out in the home, workplace and online. It turns out that many
popular ideas about gender and language are more complicated than they first
appear. This book will change the way you think about language, and give you
the tools to challenge the world around you.
