Ann Johnson's insight:

From the essay: "First, I noticed that [my women grad students'] prose was often littered with “maybe” or “perhaps,” “it seems” or “it appears.” In graduate school, I had once been advised to cut out all of those words from my essays because it made me look unsure of my arguments. A decade later, my own students were doing the same thing."
