And They Lived Happily Ever After ... : Helme Heine's The Most Beautiful Egg in the World and the Fairy Tale of Feminism

While this suggests that feminists should develop a new language to weave into the language taught to children, Heine's text suggests that teaching our children a new language is a much more difficult process than one might think.
