Abstract :

Studies have been conducted on the English language being sexist. Efforts have been done in de-sexing publications. There have been revised guidelines released by publishers and scholastic organizations to help authors identify areas of biases. The National Council of Teachers of English has created a committee in 1971 on the role and image of women and has adopted a policy statement encouraging the use of nonsexist language. Research is conducted on whether sexism exists in the textbooks in English education in Japan.
