Communicating Power and Gender, Deborah J. Borisoff · James W. Chesebro

"Examining and exploring how communication is employed to link gender and power can create a child-like sense of wonderment in us. It can disappoint. It can infuriate. It can make us smile at the human condition. It can make us shake our head in concern."


"Sometimes stereotypes can be humorous, and they may also reflect partial truths that require time and energy if they are to be unpacked to reveal the misleading nature of the generalization."
