“Sexist language promotes and maintains attitudes that stereotype people according to gender while assuming that the male is the norm—the significant gender. Nonsexist language treats both sexes equally and either does not refer to a person’s sex when it is irrelevant or refers to men and women and to girls and boys in symmetrical ways.”
Rosalie Maggio, Unspinning the Spin: The Women's Media Center Guide to Fair and Accurate Language

“Accuracy of language is one of the bulwarks of truth. Anna Jameson”
Rosalie Maggio, Unspinning the Spin: The Women's Media Center Guide to Fair and Accurate Language

“But Unspinning the Spin is a more comprehensive and multidisciplinary guide to words and phrases—their meanings, sources, backgrounds, suggested uses, and alternatives—than has been published so far. It’s a guide for journalists and editors in this and other countries, for bloggers creating their own media and for government officials creating policy, for students and teachers at all levels, for activists, workers in communication fields, and for any reader who loves the English language.”
