What's Your Pronoun? : Beyond He and She, Hardback Book

What's Your Pronoun? : Beyond He and She Hardback

Hardback

Description

Like trigger warnings and gender-neutral bathrooms, pronouns spark debate, prompting new policies about what pronouns to use.

More than a by-product of the culture wars, gender-neutral pronouns are, however, nothing new.

Pioneering linguist Dennis Baron puts them in historical context, noting that Shakespeare used singular they, women invoked the generic use of he to assert the right to vote (while those opposed to women's rights asserted that he did not include she) and people have been coining new gender pronouns for centuries.

An essential work in understanding how 21st century culture has evolved, What's Your Pronoun? chronicles the story of the role pronouns have played-and continue to play-in establishing both our rights and our identities.
