I got this for when I was studing English Language at A level. I've skim-read it. But she's definitely favoring women.

This book may be old for the field of sociolinguistics at this point, but a lot of the content was new to me. A lot if really interesting points about speech differences between men and women are raised and then put into a broader scope of power, in a Foucaultian sort of way. Coates presents many intuitions we have about men vs woman's speech and then goes on to provide empirical evidence to either support or deny such claims.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in linguistic
