  3. Language • Very important in socializing • Words are symbols in which we give meanings • They do three things • 1. Define • 2. Describe • 3. Evaluate

  4. Language • Draw the most typical person w/typical name • Language affects women in 3 ways • 1.) Ignores Them • “Generic he” (Ex: caveman) • There is no gender neutral pronoun (only he, she, & it)

  5. Language • Only 25% named a female so for the most of us, the “typical” is male • 2.) Defines women • Female is defined by relationship she has w/a male • Surnames link to father or husband

  6. Language • For a female, a name should be a non issue • Feminists argue changing your name is a loss of identity • Religion of child follows mother so why doesn’t the name? • Historically, wife and children were considered property

  7. Language • 3.) Deprecates Women - puts them down • Names of men & women who get around (player vs. slut) • We downplay things that are female such as the male vs. female form of a word • Female usually ends in “ess”

  8. Language • Example: Governor v. “governess” • Study: professors were sent journal articles to rate • Were identical except for the name of the author • Females were rated less than if males’ name was on it • Females often use pen names

  9. Patterns of Communication • Words hurt and heal • How would you feel if you were constantly criticized? • Men solve (find solutions) and women process (talk about it) and then solve • Females are better at expressing emotion & feelings non-verbally

  10. Non Verbal Skills • Social eye contact - how much eye contact you make in a social situation • Females look away • People who look away seem insecure

  11. Non Verbal Skills • 1 male and female volunteer to sit in chair • Hold hands • Who is leading who? • Personal Space - women take up less • Body position - females sit in more restrictive posture

  12. Non Verbal Skills • (legs crossed) while males sit with legs out • Space is status (ex: bigger office, bigger house)

  13. Verbal Skills • Masculine - direct or powerful • Feminine - indirect, powerless (seem weak or less convincing) • Doesn’t matter if a person is a male or female • 4 examples of Feminine Speech Patterns

  14. Feminine Speech Patterns • 1. Tag Questions - implies passivity • It’s asking for validation so shows doubt and weakness • EX: “That was a good movie, wasn’t it?” or “Call me back, all right?”

  15. Feminine Speech Patterns • 2. Qualifiers - words or phrases that soften a statement • EX: “This may be a stupid question but…” • 3. Longer request phrases • EX: Men to secretary - “Photocopy this for me” while Woman would say to secretary

  16. Feminine Speech Patterns • “When you have the time could you please photocopy this for me” • 4. Fillers - suggest discomfort with a topic • EX: “Ums, ers, ya know, like” • Men more often interrupt women than vice versa
