Summary

¿El idioma invisibiliza a la mujer? ¿Es compatible la lucha feminista con el respeto al sistema de la lengua? ¿Tiene sentido que el masculino genérico se presente como símbolo de la dominación del varón? ¿Es eficaz actuar sobre el lenguaje para combatir el machismo?

Este libro ha sido concebido con espíritu conciliador y divulgativo para acercar posiciones distantes, sin que ello suponga dar por buenos ciertos tópicos que se han ido imponiendo a fuerza de repetirse. Ante un debate tremendamente apasionado, Álex Grijelmo muestra los aciertos pero también las contradicciones y los excesos, y tiene la sensibilidad, la independencia y la solidez necesarias para aportar claridad y sentido común.

Algunos de los problemas que denuncia el feminismo sí se hallan en fenómenos de lengua; pero los más criticables (los refranes, los dichos o la perspectiva androcentrista que, a menudo sin darnos cuenta, aplicamos al hablar), no son necesariamente los que más se combaten.

Frente al ruido relacionado con el lenguaje inclusivo, Grijelmo presenta un recorrido descomplicado, revelador, ameno y repleto de ejemplos; y ofrece una serie de propuestas que no pretenden decir la última palabra sino ofrecer un documento de trabajo para quienes quieran contribuir al debate con nuevas argumentaciones.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION
 
Does language make women invisible? Can the feminist struggle be fought while at the same time respect the rules of the Spanish language? Does it make sense that the generic masculine ending in Spanish be presented as a symbol of male domination? Is it effective to act against the language in order to fight machismo?
 
This book came about with a conciliatory and informative spirit to bring together opposing views, but without taking for certain some themes that have been imposed by force of repetition. Faced with a tremendously passionate debate, Alex Grijelmo shows successes but also contradictions, and has the sensitivity, independence, and solidity necessary to provide clarity and common sense to the subject at hand.
 
Yes, some of the problems that feminism condemns are found in peculiarities of the language; but the most criticizable ones (the everyday sayings or the perspectives focused and centered on men that, often without realizing it, we apply when speaking), are not necessarily the ones that we fight against the most.
 
Faced with the noise related to inclusive language, Grijelmo presents an uncomplicated, revealing, and enjoyable journey full of examples; and offers a series of proposals that are not intended to place a final verdict, but rather offer a working document for those who want to contribute to the debate with new points of view.
