This paper first studies the history of gender roles with regard to communication and how in the past decades with the openness of society and globalization, it has become more "acceptable" for women to take leading roles in public speaking. The writer also looks at studies which examined the different way school children communicated in co-ed and non co-ed schools. Finally gender differences in the workplace are analyzed.
From the Paper:"In the past, men and women's roles were strictly enforced by society. Men were expected to behave in a certain way and women were expected to in another way. No one would dare to violate these unwritten rules, or face extreme humiliation. In the case of women acting in a way that was traditionally a man's behavior, in some cultures, she could face physical punishment for her transgressions. When men violated social graces, often these transgressions were ignored. As women gained more status, these roles began to change, but the differences still existed. They were only expressed in a more subtle way. "
