Alphabet tricks

Explores the use of derogatory language used in relation to women. Each pocket holds a card with a red letter of the alphabet and a made up definition, bridging the gap between the tame dictionary version of the word and the derogatory meaning. The book embellishes the degradation of the word, yet still manages to push the reader to look between the lines at a society that exploits women as sex objects and at the same time condemns women who choose to work in the sex industry.
