Abstract

This paper explores the various aspects of gender communication through social, cultural, and linguistic viewpoints to reach an awareness of the present-day communication barriers facing women in business management positions. By researching the historical background in gender relationships through culture and language, a foundation of expected societal sex-roles is established. Also considered is the development of the differences in gender communication and the gender divergence in verbal and nonverbal communication.
