Communication is the first step to understand an emotional conflict and to solve it from its understanding. Communication conflicts among people, in general, and gender communication, in particular, entails a deep consideration of human relationship. The key to understand this is really simple: put yourself in the other’s shoes and imagine how you would feel.
Communication is hard work, translating how people communicate in a particular context, is a difficult task, too. Communication takes place in different ways. It depends on several factors like age, culture or social background. This book presents communication as the starting point to understand the different communication patterns between men and women as regards social status and within a racial background. Kate Chopin supplies a fascinating American-Civil-War background that is able to make an iced rock cry.
