Summary

While progressing beyond mere stereotyping of male and female behavior, Communication and Gender examines how gender pervades the communication process in a variety of contexts.Exploring the complexities of gender communication in interpersonal relationships, the educational environment, the media, and the workplace, this book offers strategies that readers can use to examine their own communication behavior and to more fully understand the communication of others. Communication and Gender includes a solid foundation of theory and research, presented in a conversational and accessible style. By mixing equal amounts of theory and "real world" examples relevant to readers, Communication and Gender focuses on the communication process as it's experienced by an increasingly diverse population.For those looking to strengthen their communication skills.
