The work explains current research and how various influences (biology, social influences, language, media) impact behaviour and communication; it also explores relationship initiation and development, with specific reference to friendships, romantic relationships, marriage and family contexts, educational settings and the workplace. Intended to sensitize students to the subtle, sexist properties of language, it offers simple, contemporary, non-sexist alternatives. ---Product Description."@en ;
