Customers who viewed this item also viewed
Fascinating and hugely informative, Allyson Jule will make you realise just how powerful language is in creating the gender norms that many of us are trying to battle against. This is a brilliant way to understand how language has shaped women's experience in a patriarchal world. Timely, rigorous, and so important, Jule's research gives substance and weight to the current feminist conversation.(Marisa Bate, contributing editor at The Pool and author of The Periodic Table of Feminism)
A highly accessible beginner's guide for the era of #MeToo and LGBTQ+, but also of neoliberalism and Trump. It will be a welcome addition to the field of gender and language.(Mary Talbot, author of Language and Gender)
I can't wait to read it!(Sofie Hagen, stand-up comedian and podcaster)
Speaking Up is so much more than a book about the linguistic habits of men and women. It is a journey through feminist history, a retrospective of the successes and failures of the research that has shaped the study of language and gender, and a close look at the underlying social forces that influence our language patterns daily in personal relationships, the workplace, and beyond.
A rich, insightful journey through the hidden dynamics behind language in action.(Ada Brunstein, writer and editor)
