    Interesting! The article’s behind a subscriber wall so I can’t see the details, but I’m curious about the methodology. Was Google Books the corpus that was used? I wonder if there was any attempt to distinguish between the decrease in the generic masculine, and the rise of specific feminine subjects.

    And, on a slightly different note, given the allusion in your post title, I thought I’d share this appeal for help for non-profit organization that publishes that feminist classic, Our Bodies, Ourselves.
