Focusing on the female voice in public contexts, language and gender specialists consider the barriers and opportunities encountered by women in gaining recognition in politics, law, the church, education, business and the media, where people are increasingly judged by their speech and where male and female speech is often evaluated differently.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I appreciate the breadth of contexts studied, from media, politics, work settings, religion courtrooms and classrooms. I believe they constitute a solid coverage that potentially make the book a classic, bridging a broad spectrum of evidence that will be very useful both to advanced undergraduate and to graduate students and to researchers...There is no other text that does similar work...very exciting and satisfying.' - Victoria Bergvall, Associate Professor of Linguistics, Michigan Technological University, USA
