Abstract: This study examines women- versus-women language use to underscore the fact that women languages are never neutral but embody ideologies and power relations. Literature is filled with men versus women discourses with more of stereotypical conclusions about women language use, leading to voicelessness in respect of women versus women subjugation. Using the tool of Critical Discourse Analysis, this study examined some excerpts from a Nigerian film titled A Little Lie to underscore some systems of bias and subjugation in some women’s language against their sisters. The analysis of the women language use showed evidences of superiority/inferiority and domination of some women by other women as a result of childlessness The study recommends that the identity of a woman among her peers should not be determined by whether she has a child or not. In addition, an intentional effort be made to throw in voices into this voiceless area by feminists’ proponents, in order to liberate some of these women who are treated as less than a human by other women.
