Sample text

In the Victorian and early twentieth century world described earlier, an awareness of class divisions was evident. The Labour and Conservative Parties set out to have explicit class appeal, and the trade union movement in part encapsulated the solidarity of ‘the workers’ as opposed to everyone else. This is less in evidence today, with almost half of the TUC’s membership made up of non-manual workers and a Labour Party explicitly aiming at a broad-based appeal. The General Strike was difficult enough to organize in the 1920s, with huge efforts to promote a sense of working class solidarity.

Every time such interaction took place it had the effect of recreating, reinforcing and cementing the racialized social structure. In this sense language is behaviour, it is more than ‘just words’ it is an active element in constantly remaking social inequality. Something similar is at work in conventions about who may call whom by their first names: social power is held by those who do not need to ask permission. We would suggest there is some parallel between this and addressing or describing adult women as ‘girls’ (though of course such usage is often not seen as controversial, much less offensive).
