From the Paper:

"Research about gender difference and feminism in technical communication can be traced back to 1989 when Mary Lay published her well reviewed article "Interpersonal Conflict in Collaborative Writing: What We Can Learn from Gender Studies." Since this was the first attempt in this field, she based her research on many other disciplines including social psychology, philosophy, linguistics, composition and rhetoric and managerial communication, etc. Since then research in gender difference in technical communication has gained momentum. Loads of articles were published."
