Planning for a Global Lingua Franca: Challenges for Feminist Language Planning in English(es) around the World
Pauwels, Anne
Current Issues in Language Planning, v12 n1 p9-19 Feb 2011
In this paper I outline the challenges for feminist language planning in the context of a global lingua franca--English. Drawing upon the views of speakers of "World Englishes" I discuss their reactions as well as reported practices in relation to gender-inclusive language use. This reveals the complexities of managing the tension between the "universal" goals of feminism(s) and the myriad of local and cultural differences affecting in the social, economic and political positions of women.
