Mills challenges the notion that women are always more polite than men. She discusses the complex relations between gender & politeness, arguing that although there are times when women will appear to be acting in a more polite way than men, there are many times where women will act just as impolitely as men.

Sara Mills is Research Professor in Linguistics at Sheffield Hallam University. She has published in the field of feminist linguistics and politeness research and also in postcolonial feminist theory. Her most recent publications are Language and Sexism (Cambridge University Press, 2008), Gender and Colonial Space (2004), Gender and Politeness (Cambridge University Press, 2003), Discourse (2000) and Michel Foucault (2002).
