i ABSTRACT Mulyasari, Kartika Noor. 2017. Seeing Linguistic Sexism Trough American Newspapers Published In 1960ÔÇÖs To Present. Thesis, English Department, Faculty of Letter, Universitas Negeri Malang. Advisor: (I) Dr. Mirjam Anugerahwati, M.A, (II) Drs. Kukuh Prayitno Subagyo, M.A. Keywords: sexism, feminism, American newspaper, first-wave feminism, second-wave feminism, linguistic sexism Second-wave feminism is a women movements started in the 1960ÔÇÖs. This movement is inspired by a book entitled The Feminine Mystique, whch is authored by a feminist, Betty Friedan. This movement has successfully improved American womenÔÇÖs social life, by ensuring womenÔÇÖs emancipation that gives them freedom in deciding the values in their lifes, for instance, family planning. These freedoms for American women strated after womenÔÇÖs emancipation was officially taking place by the time President John F Kennedy created Presidential Commission on the Status of Women in 1961, as well as by the time American feminists builtorganisations concerning feminism and gender inequalities. This movement endangered the existence of sexism in United States of America. It is quite intriguing to know whether feminism could change some aspects in English like how it could change American womenÔÇÖs social life. It is quite interesting to know whether feminism could banish the idea of sexism. Actually, after 1970ÔÇÖs, English changed to be more neutral, which means that second wave feminism has succesfully put its effect on the system of English, but second wave feminism could not banish sexism in the context of language because of some aspects ofAmerican tradition attaced in the language used in United State of America.
