Language of Female Leadership by Judith Baxter

Book Description

Could language be a reason why women are under-represented at senior level in the business world? Using data from senior management meetings, this book explores how female leaders use language to achieve their business and relational goals by arguing that senior women have to develop linguistic expertise in order to be effective leaders.

Double-Voicing at Work by Judith Baxter Double-Voicing at Work, Hardback (January 2014)

This book reveals how 'double-voicing' is an inherent and routine part of spoken interactions within institutional contexts. Baxter's research shows that women use double-voicing more than men as a means of gaining acceptance and approval in the workplace. Double-voicing thus involves an interplay between power, gender and linguistic expertise.

Speaking Out by Judith Baxter Speaking Out, Hardback (December 2005)

Focusing on the female voice in public contexts, a group of language and gender specialists considers the barriers and opportunities encountered by women in gaining recognition in politics, law, the church, education, the business world and the media, where people are judged by the way they speak and where female speech is evaluated differently.

Positioning Gender in Discourse by Judith Baxter Positioning Gender in Discourse, Paperback (September 2003)

Feminist Poststructuralist Discourse Analysis helps analyse how speakers construct their gendered identities within a complex web of power relations. Demonstrated here through a study of teenagers' conversation in class and senior managers' discussions in business meetings, it challenges the view that females are disempowered in mixed-sex settings.

Oscar Wilde: The Importance of Being Earnest by Judith Baxter Oscar Wilde: The Importance of Being Earnest, Paperback (May 1999)
