Last One Across Is a Big Girl's Blouse! An Examination of Language Use and Gender in Outdoor Activities.
Levi, Jan
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership, v12 n1 p25-26 Spr 1995
Addresses the problem of sexist language use in outdoor education. Suggests the use of gender-free language, including using appropriate pronouns, avoiding irrelevant modifiers, abstaining from referring to women in terms of appearance or marital status; avoiding the use of patronizing terms; and increasing the number of examples showing women in jobs and roles typically ascribed to men.
