1978: 6) Dixon sounds determinist and dated here, as theorizations of gender have changed, and professional and educational opportunities for women Content Analysis: The Early Days 47 have increased since the 1970s. Dixon’s focus on ‘classic’ girls’ stories is worth reading, but critically. In considering different forms of ‘the construction of the cage’ (its ‘supports’), he examines books by Louisa M. Alcott (starting with Little Women) and Susan Coolidge (the Katy series). Dixon emphasizes not only the predictable gender stereotyping (girls looking after brothers, being praised for being neat and ladylike), but also the constant theme of the ‘taming of the tomboy’ (Jo, Katy – something that had been categorized as ‘Cop-outs’ by ‘Feminists on Children’s Literature in 1971).

These reflected a spread of publication dates. Despite being sceptical about earlier work, Stewig and Higgs confirmed previous findings: more male characters, men in a wider range of professional roles, women portrayed in homemaking roles (aside from the few who were teachers, maids or nuns), and claimed that what women were represented as doing at home was neither creative nor intellectual.

G. Millard, 1997). However, gender-differential tendencies here still concern the sex of the writer rather than what is written. Model 1, then, cannot properly address the question of the construction/construal of gender in a spoken or written text in a way in which the sex of the speaker or writer may be of no concern. Model 2 of Gender (Ideas-based) So what is the alternative to gender as associated with the who of language use? g. Foucault, 1972), gender is an idea (or set of ideas) about men/women, boys/girls and gender relations.
