The Textual Abuse of Childhood in the English-Speaking World: The Contribution of Language to the Denial of Children's Rights.
Saunders, Bernadette J.; Goddard, Chris
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n4 p443-62 Nov 2001
Highlights how language of journalists and academics to describe children's experiences reflects and influences the position and rights accorded to children in the English-speaking world. Contends that children's low status is perpetuated through "textual abuse" in academic literature on children's rights. Maintains that children are objectified and denied their gender and that gender is used to pursue adult agendas. (Author/KB)
