Book – edited volume
The essays in this volume, derived from the papers delivered at the Language and History Subsection of the 1980 History Workshop (UK), constitute an important contribution to feminist theory, as they challenge sexist practices within fields like the institutions of child care, education, the traditions of literary study, the writing of history, and developmental psychology.
