ALL CHANGE BEGINS SOMEWHERE
Be a part of the language revolution!
New From Vivian Probst
In 2008, Vivian Probst discovered a simple but subversive code in English that was so visibly against women, that she spent fifteen years researching how to fix it before releasing her theory in her book 'Breaking The Bias of English'.
This is her story–a rediscovery of how much English prefers men; of how those of us who aren't men are disempowered by English, and most importantly, how to reclaim our voices with only six minor word changes:
The; She; Her, Woman, Women, and They are the six words. Watch how these change and open doors to words for us! Join Probst as she corrals an entire language, transforming the 'he' power of English into 'we' power.
Welcome to 'WEnglish for Equality'.

Thanks for your interest in my writing and determination to shift the English language!

You'll find much of what need below and if you need something else, I am happy to collaborate. Contact me and we will get things rolling.
As a trained linguist and a prolific, award-winning, author & speaker,
Vivian has discovered easy ways to break English out of its overtly
And no, It’s not that she doesn't like men; it’s that English needs to
respect women more!
Let's open the door wide open so that those of us who are not men
(by birth or preference) are no longer so utterly and completely ignored.
Did you know that English has over 20,000 words that include what Vivian calls ‘man’ words and that even words for those of us who aren’t men associate us with men?
Try to say an English word for ‘woman’ that isn’t linked to a ‘man’ word...
If you have found one, send me a note!
WEnglish in Literature
Combining her writing mastery with her passion for making language more inclusive, Vivian has written three novels in WEnglish (and two more are forthcoming.) You won't even notice the language change - you will however notice the intriguing adventures of Avery Victoria Spencer and how she faces loneliness, forgotten love, and finds the courage to transcend a troubled past.
