Description

This study examined 80 short stories written by Caucasian male and female short story authors in the later part of the 19th century. Results indicate that while males and females did not have specifically different styles, the topics on which they wrote differed. These results were compared to the works of feminist authors as well as modern day research on gender differences in writing style. Reasons for and implications of results are discussed.
