NYC Book Launch: Amanda Montell presents Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language
In conversation with Camille Perri
Reception to follow

In Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language, linguist and journalist Amanda Montell deconstructs language to reveal the ways it has been used for centuries to keep women and other marginalized genders from gaining equality. Montell infuses this guide with humor and wit as she explores the connections between language change and social change. This approachable introduction to linguistics calls readers to take back the English language and break free of the power structures that use language to bind us. Camille Perri, author of When Katie met Cassidy, joins Montell at Greenlight to break down how to break free. A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s New York launch.
