Review: Women and Language in Susan Griffin's Woman and Nature: The Roaring inside Her [Book Review]

Hypatia 9 (3):225 - 238 (1994)
Abstract
In Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Her, Susan Griffin's embedding of language and culture within the natural world implicitly offers a critique of widespread assumptions, shared by many feminists, that language belongs only to the powerful and that it is inherently violent. Griffin's depiction of the process through which women come to speech is illuminated by V. N. Vološinov's work on the multiaccentuality of language and by Trinh Minh-ha's characterizations of oral traditions. Both authors stress the constant re-creation of language by speakers and listeners.
