Gender-Biased Language in Learning Disability Textbooks.
Foley, Teresa; Safran, Stephen P.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v27 n5 p309-14 May 1994
Exploration of gender-biased language in two editions of learning disabilities textbooks found that the male author's work exhibited a 7:1 ratio of masculine to feminine pronouns, whereas the female author's text showed no significant differences in use of gender-specific pronouns. The male author had increased use of gender-neutral pronouns compared with earlier editions. (Author/DB)
