The word bitch conjures many images but is most often meant to describe an unpleasant woman. Even before its usage to mean a female canine, bitch didn’t refer to gender at all—it originated as a gender-neutral word meaning genitalia. A perfectly innocuous word devolving into a female insult is the case for many more terms, including hussy—which simply meant “housewife”—or slut, which meant “untidy” and was also used to describe men. These words are just a few among history’s countless English slurs hurled at women. Amanda Montell, feminist linguist and staff features editor at online beauty and health magazine Byrdie.com, deconstructs language—from insults and cursing to grammar and pronunciation patterns—to reveal the ways it has been used for centuries to keep women form gaining equality. In her latest book, Wordslut, she moves effortlessly between history and popular culture to get to the heart of our language, marvel at its elasticity, and shed much-needed light on the biases that shadow women in our culture and our consciousness. Join Amanda for a brash and enlightening feminist look at gendered language and the way it shapes us.   Amanda Montell is a writer, video content maker, and linguistics groupie living in Los Angeles. Her writing has appeared in Marie Claire, Woman’s Day, The Rumpus, and Time Out Magazine, and she is a staff features editor at online beauty and health magazine Byrdie.com. She is also the creator and host of the web series The Dirty Word, which airs on Jill Soloway’s Wifey.tv and has been featured in Glamour, Bustle, Refinery29, Hello Giggles, and BUST Magazine. She graduated magna cum laude from New York University with a degree in Linguistics.

Critically lauded author D. Watkins is pleased about the number of books exploring issues of race that are being published, but he feels that there’s one crucial aspect of contemporary black life that doesn’t get enough attention: the hood. As a Baltimore native, he knows firsthand what it means to live in poverty, where violence and drugs are inescapable. As he sees it, the perspective of people who live in poor black communities is largely absent from the work of many of the top intellectuals who speak and write about race. Now, D. Watkins is here to tell his truth. Building upon his own experiences, he eases us into the bigger conversation about race and the various issues affecting poor black neighborhoods in America. His latest book, We Speak for Ourselves identifies and addresses a range of issues affecting these low-income communities—such as the trouble with misrepresentation and why we need more than one black voice—and sheds light on the harsh realities of daily life. Watkins also examines various crucial activist movements and asks what it means to be a model activist in today’s world. Join D. Watkins for a personal retelling of his journey, illuminating the lessons he’s learned navigating through two very distinct worlds—the hood and the elite sanctums of the prominent black thinkers and public figures—in hopes of providing actionable solutions.   D. Watkins is editor-at-large for Salon. He’s also a college professor at the University of Baltimore and founder of the BMORE Writers Project. His work has been published in The New York Times, Guardian, Rolling Stone, and other publications. Watkins is the author of The Cook Up: A Crack Rock Memoir and The Beast Side: Living (and Dying) While Black in America. He lives in East Baltimore.
