Frequently bought together
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
