This is an imaginative and creative work. The analysis is profound and thoughtful. The implications are far more radical than other publications on the gender bias in language. No one who has given these matters serious thought can fail to be persuaded that the task of creating an unbiased language form has only just begun.

Research Project: Collected 20,000 items of speech addressing specifically our species across the Indo-European tradition of languages in dictionaries around the globe.

Categorized and analyzed 10,000 of the most recent and relevant. Found that 90% embedded male bias due to the 4000 years of patriarchy, slavery and feudalism.

Wrote three non-fiction books describing and explaining the consequences.
