"Don't miss or mistake the pun in the title of this book on women and language; Herrmann means to draw our attention to the way women must twist new meanings out of male language. More readily accessible-especially in this excellent translation-than the works of many new French feminists, Herrmann's study shares with them a concern for the ways in which feminine experience is distorted and devalued by a 'colonized body of knowledge and an adulterated language.'"-"Booklist"
