Untying the Tongue: Gender, Power, and the Word

Synopsis

The words and grammatical structure of a given language are the most basic building blocks of thought and communication; they reflect the ways speakers communicate with others and conceptualize themselves and their world. Since language reflects a culture's biases and inequities, a socially constructed, gendered power differential between men and women may lead each to have very different relationships to language.
