    Whiny and in many cases sloppy when it comes to referencing actual studies and issues. It has barely anything to do with linguistics, it's a self indulgent book of thoughts about feminism and language which has been covered multiple times much more thoroughly than in this book. It is easy to read, but it does not say much. Most of the points Cameron addresses are just literal whining about some basic realities such as academic language not being easily digestible for anyone.

Most of the points Cameron addresses are just literal whining about some basic realities such as academic language not being easily digestible for anyone. I find most of her problems to be non-issues. Also, it is very dated too, in 2017 you can definitely feel that this was written in the 80s.

    I had extremely hard time trying to get interested in this, getting through the process took some serious psyching every other fifteen minutes. Cameron covers some great and interesting and important areas of gender studies here, but it turned out I'm not too into her style of writing and teaching, even though the conversational sensations surely make this softer and less preachy and boring than it could be. One read-through wasn't enough for me to get the most important and up-to-date insights I had extremely hard time trying to get interested in this, getting through the process took some serious psyching every other fifteen minutes.

One read-through wasn't enough for me to get the most important and up-to-date insights out of this, luckily I make notes so I didn't have to read it again completely, I'm not sure I could have endured that.
