***SEE NOTES DOC FOR EXPLANATION ON BULLET POINTS/FURTHER INFO
What Feminist Sociolinguistics would include is the following: analyzation of the contrasting roles of the female in society and how they are evident in everyday language use, comparison of the value society places upon a female’s body versus her intellect, how language makes these roles and values apparent, and furthermore, how language can be used to further constrain or liberate these female roles. In short, how does language use oppress or liberate the female mind and body – and how does this impact her everyday life, and ultimately, our overall culture?
In order to approach all these concepts, I will be delving into a variety of subjects to provide the most comprehensive study. Thus, in order to effectively explain what I\'ve learned, I\'ll be providing an array of evolutionary psychology, neuropsychology, language as a patriarchal tool of oppression, the history of the development of language (more written, but some oral), how women have tried to regain both their bodies and the sexual language that is associated with them, how females record history (and have had history recorded on them), society\'s expectations and projected gender roles on women, and the importance of writing as a form of therapy and mode of defiance.
