This might present a problem in the more general case:
His portfolio (his work) speaks well of him.
Uh. I better throw out an idea then. How 'bout the original has markers
that are transformed to either male or female. That is, the original has
words like $She/He$, $she/he$, and so on. Replace is then repeatedly used
to convert these to (for female) She, she, and so on. (A smart, but
perhaps slower, method might infer the replacements from the text.)
