Problems of language and linguistic analysis have entered the arena of feminist debate in the late 1960s. Much feminist effort is directed to reanalyzing society as a patriarchy, a system in which men have power over women. Language is part of patriarchy. Feminists stress that language is pervaded by sexism and that women are alienated from it because it is controlled by men. Grounded on basic notions of leading postmodernist thinkers, feminist linguistics expanded rapidly and transformed later into the gender linguistics.
