Language & Gender Online Event

Tuesday, May 31, 2022 | 6:30 p.m.

Amanda Montell, reporter and feminist linguist, deconstructs language — from insults and cursing, gossip, and catcalling, to grammar and pronunciation patterns — to reveal the ways it has been used for centuries to keep women and other marginalized genders from power.

Montell’s book Wordslut is available through Planet Word’s Bookshop.org storefront. Planet Word is an affiliate of Bookshop.org and will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.

The Language & Series is made possible by a grant from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation.
