Robin Lakoff: The War on Women is not being fought by the Republicans alone. Many Democrats, male and female, are their willing – nay, eager – allies.
Robin Lakoff teaches and writes on language and gender; the politics of language; language and popular culture. More academically her work comes under the rubrics of sociolinguistics and the relationship between language form and language function.
She has written or edited 10 books, among them "Language and Woman's Place"; "Face Value: The Politics of Beauty"; "Talking Power"; and "The Language War."
