Gendered Words Project
A project I started illustrating female-specific, gendered words in the English language that have narrowly defined and stereotyped women in derogatory ways throughout history. This is about the power of words and language, and understanding patriarchy as a system. Language is part of patriarchy. Understanding the history of words allows us to explore the changing attitudes towards women and the changing status of women. In order to fight oppression we must first understand it.
