The third edition of The Gender Communication Connection helps readers consider the myriad ways gendered attitudes and practices influence communication in our personal and professional interactions.
Written in an engaging style, with a wide array of exercises designed to challenge and interest readers in applying what they learn, the book integrates research with examples from contemporary life related to gender and culture, race, class, and media. This edition adds three new learning activities to the end of each chapter, inviting students to think critically and reflect on gender and communication in their own lives. Among new topics covered: multiple genders, gender activism including the “Me Too” movement, and challenges of 21st century masculinities and femininities including expanded coverage of contemporary male issues. Fresh coverage also is afforded to each communication context, particularly gender at work, the legal and political spheres, global cultures, and the digital world, including social media.
The book is ideally suited for undergraduate courses in gender and communication within communication studies, sociology, and business departments.
Online resources include lecture slides and an instructor’s manual.
