Well HUH

Let's not get into how I came across this, but China's oldest inheritress of the Nushu language, probably the world's only female-specific language, died last month.

Clearly this isn't a new thing, but it's the first I've heard of it. Discovery News also did a story on the Nushu language earlier in the year. FASINATING.
