Womansword : what Japanese words say about women
Womansword : what Japanese words say about women / Kittredge Cherry.
|Main author:||Cherry, Kittredge, 1957- (author.)|
30th anniversary edition, First Stone Bridge Press edition.
Thirty years after its first publication, Womansword remains a timely, provocative work on how words reflect female stereotypes in modern Japan. Short, lively essays offer linguistic, sociological, and historical insight into issues central to the lives of women everywhere: identity, girlhood, marriage, motherhood, work, sexuality, and aging. A new introduction shows how things have—and haven't—changed.
