Description: Controversy over gendered pronouns, for example using the generic "he", has been a staple of feminist arguments about patriarchal language over the last 30 years, and is certainly the most contested political issue in Western feminist linguistics. Most accounts do not extend beyond policy issues Eke the official institution of non-sexist language. In this volume, Anna Livia reveals continuities both before and after the sexist Language reform movement and shows how the creative practices of pronoun use on the part of feminist writers had both aesthetic and political ends. Livia uses the term "pronoun envy" ironically to show that rather being a case of misguided envy, battles over gendered language are central to feminist concerns.
