Most modern style manuals endorse the elimination of sexist language. Would the reduction of sexist language influence the thoughts or attitudes of individuals who comply with these standards? Why or why not?

    Yes. If nurses and elementary teachers are always referred to as "she," don't we tend to think of them as women? If CEOs and their "wives" are invited, don't we tend to think of CEOs as men?

    Language is powerful!

    Thanks! This makes sense.
