Men and Women in Interaction: Reconsidering the Differences
Oxford University Press, 1996 M02 29 - 304 páginas
For many years the dominant focus in gender relations has been the differences between men and women. Authors such as Deborah Tannen (You Just Don't Understand) and John Gray (Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus) have argued that there are deep-seated and enduring differences between male and female personalities, styles, even languages. Elizabeth Aries sees the issue as more complex and dependent on several variables, among them the person's status, role, goals, conversational partners, and the characteristics of the situational context. Aries discusses why we emphasize the differences between the sexes, the ways in which these are exaggerated, and how we may be perpetuating the very stereotypes we wish to abandon. For psychologists and researchers of gender and communication, this book will illuminate recent studies in gender relations. For general readers it will offer a stimulating counterpoint to prevailing views.

Página 204 - We have claimed that a person's gender is not simply an aspect of what one is, but, more fundamentally, it is something that one does, and does recurrently, in interaction with others.
Página 5 - To recast our findings slightly, the data suggests that men pro-act, that is, they initiate relatively long bursts of acts directed at the solution of the task problem, and women tend more to react to the contributions of others.
Página 162 - ... one index of the extent to which these male attitudes have been internalized. The linguistic precocity of female children has been well established,5 but the likelihood that this facility develops into a rich and subtle oral art in the talk of adult women is not seen as an obvious corollary. 3. Topic Women are an occupational group of a special kind, and our occupation and training as wives, girlfriends and mothers are reflected in the topics of gossip.

Rather than passively observing reality, we actively construct the meanings that frame and organize our perceptions and experience. Thus, our understanding of reality is a representation, not an exact replica, of what is out there. Representations of reality are shared meanings that derive from shared language, history, and culture. Rorty (1979) suggests that the notion of accurate representation is a compliment we pay to those beliefs...
