One of the great classics of the women's movement, 'Man made language' opened our eyes to the myriad ways in which the rules and uses of language promote a male, and so inherently partial, view of the world.
Spender also argues that since language is crucial to human-ness, it is through the patriarchal language that much of women's subordination is structured and maintained.
Often imitated, never replaced, 'Man Made Language' has become a cornerstone of modern feminist thought.
'A clever, lively and entertaining book. I have to admit she has a point.'
PHILIP HOWARD, 'The Times'
