Abstract:

Challenging the notion that women are necessarily always more polite
than men (as language and gender literature claim), Sara Mills
discusses the complex relationship between gender and
politeness. Mills argues that, although women speakers, drawing on
stereotypes of femininity, can appear to be acting more politely than
men, there are many circumstances where women will act as "impolitely"
as men.
