Women place more value on relationships and connectedness. They are more intrested in members ' personally and professionaly. Male team members use competition, dominance and aggression in their work relations whereas women are more dependent, supportive and
One of these perspectives is analyzing communication through gender. In the book, You Just Don’t Understand, Deborah Tannen (1990) popularized the term “genderlect” to describe the way in which men and women communicate with each other. She suggested that men and women have different styles of conversing, forming two distinct dialects. In a review of Tannen’s book, DeFrancisco (1992) attributed the differing communication styles of men and women to the respective cultures in which they grow up. Because of such gender differences, misunderstanding between men and women creates a gap in the communication process.
The manner in which the men and women carry themselves around is fundamental to the definition and distinction of gender in general. There are acts both of omission and commission that are associated with each gender. However as days go by, the society undergoes transformation and so do the traditions and cultures that shape and influence the society as whole. In the family set up for example, the different roles are distributed depending on gender. There are also perceptions relating to the behavior of people that distinguish what are expected and what is not expected from people of a given gender.
Such as discouragement in gender inclusion, biased in making big decisions of the company, no promotional opportunities, and obstruction to be a leader of a company with a blame that women are less professional. Male believe that women cannot handle conflict and avoid confrontation, too emotional and they do not go to the point so that they do not deserve leading position. It is a fact that men and women differ in a way they communicate but this is not intelligence that way of communication establish norms that women lack skills in leadership and cannot hold the position of management. Therefore, this situation has encouraged me to develop a research proposal to find out the truth behind gender disparity and its importance in communication within the workplace setting. Purpose of the Study The purpose of this study is to explore the problems of gender disparity.
A lot of these roles or characteristics do not agree with the acceptance of worldviews and therefore gender roles does have a big influence on worldviews. Different worldviews and cultures have different opinions on gender and their roles; and as generations evolves the idea of gender expectations will change. Stereotypes and gender roles affect men and women in different
Because of the gender difference, there exist many differences when people use language. Thus there is a close relationship between different genders and language use. Although the study of how gender is reflected in language is a recent branch of linguistics, it has developed into a wide field with a considerable number of studies since the first publications of research findings in the early1960s. The research on the relationship between language and gender develops on 4 levels: 1 the gender difference in language form and structure; 2 gender discrimination in language; 3 the gender difference in utterance style; 4 the reasons for gender difference in language. While the first studies in the field focused on differences between the ways men and women talk
Women are less likely to be chosen to work in positions of power because of false stereotypes. To combat this, organisations must become vigilant in identifying and eliminating these stereotypes to overcome gender bias and take advantage of their full talent
Moreover, these studies demonstrated the significance of communication between women and men. According to my other researches', genders are responsible in order to generate the way that lead to equal communication between them. As a result, there is need to investigate some factors for equal communication methods for both women and men because of considering communication as a one of the predominant factor for students' future career. Theory or Theoretical perspective This research is about the factors related to the varieties of gender communication among students at ADA University. This theory is based on difference between genders communication that has real connection with behavior, skills, ideas and etc.
such a powerful tool that both men and women use it to build their boundaries and these boundaries are some of the reasons for the variation in the classification. The differences in gender language are determined by culture/ethnicity, relationship, age, geographic origin, job/societal status, sexual orientation and education of men and women (Wright 2002:5). Times are changing rapidly; the world is fast becoming a global village. As a result, it will be out of place to assume that the classification of gender in society A should be the same in societies B and C. This therefore implies that in every society, there is always an adopted way of doing things that differs from that of another culture. Research has shown that Gender classification
2. REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE It might be fairly uncontroversial today to claim that gender differences in language use pervade every aspect of the social world. However, it was not until quite recently that researchers investigating gender differences in language use have acknowledged that there might be some gender differences in Computer-Mediated Communication. Gender Differences in language use have been reviewed by both feminists and sociolinguists, while some researchers in the field of Computer and Online Communication have reviewed gender and online communication, leaving out the language aspect. Thus, this study reviews three major areas, which are theories of gender and language use, gender and language use, and gender and language
