Wordslut Promises to Help Feminists Take Back the English Language

By May 8, 2019 May 11th, 2019 New Releases

The English language has so many words that are specifically designed to disparage women. From ‘bitch’, a female dog but often used to insult women, to ‘slattern’, a lazy woman who is not houseproud, women are judged by the language in a way that men often aren’t but this wildly entertaining new book is about to shake up the language!

Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking back the English Language will be released later this month and promises to be a brash, enlightening, and wildly entertaining feminist look at gendered language and the way it shapes us, written with humour and playfulness that challenges words and phrases and how we use them.

In this new book Amanda Montell moves between history, science and popular culture to explore questions around how women are judged by the way they talk, or the words used to describe them, From vocal fry to the word like as a filler, Montell dissects it all in this funny and clever new book.

Wordslut gets to the heart of our language and sheds much needed light into the biases that shadow women in our culture and our consciousness!

Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language is out on 28th May and is available for pre-order now!
