Psychology in Action: Sex Bias in Language Use: "Neutral" Pronouns That Aren't.
Moulton, Janice; And Others
American Psychologist, v33 n11 p1032-36 Nov 1978, Nov78
An argument is presented with a supportive experiment which suggests that the use of male terms such as he, his, and man sometimes fail to be gender-neutral, even in explicitly gender-neutral contexts, and may therefore be a cause of sex bias and a vestige of past inequality. (Author/EB)
