Man Made Language
By Dale Spender

Amazon's product description: This edition of this feminist study of language offers clear analysis of the ways in which our language is "man-made", of all the subtle and not-so-subtle ways in which the masculine is asserted as the norm, while feminine experience is muted and pushed to the margins of life and language.

Why I want to read this book: I am extremely fascinated by the feminist view on language and the way it shaped society.
