Description

This is critical review and re-evaluation of the empirical literature on men and women in conversational interaction in light of recent debates about gender differences. Aries contends that gender differences have been exaggerated and that many variables have been ignored, most notably the status and power of the individuals in conversation, their race, their education, among other factors.show more

Review quote

Black, Purdue Universityshow more
