This video looks at how the academic study of gender and communication has evolved over time and investigates what it means to “do gender,” as opposed to being one gender or another. It looks into how communication styles and speech acts fall onto a continuum of “masculine” and “feminine.” It features vignettes with men and women that have taken on roles that fall outside of what is standard for their gender in our society, and explores the impact that this has made on their styles of communication.
