Gendered Language in Teacher Reviews

Jasmine has shared two wonderful links to studies documenting a connection between evaluation of professors and gender.  One is by Professor Ben Schmidt at Northeastern University.  He made an interactive chart that shows how often certain words are used to describe male and female professors across different disciplines, including philosophy, using data from Find the chart at Gendered Language in Teacher Reviews.  A related link, “Is the Professor Bossy or Brilliant?” was recently published in the NY Times.
