The Process of Gender encourages students to critically examine the ways that their gender has influenced his/her values, attitudes, behaviors, experiences, and communication. The publication contains sixteen published readings that examine the multitude of ways that gender influences the process of communication.

Students have spent a lifetime constructing their personal gender identity and the expectations and biases that come with that experience. The Process of Gender examines the influence of family, personal relationships, media, educational institutions, and workplaces have on one’s understanding and presentation of masculinity and femininity.

The Process of Gender:

  • encourages critical thinking! Students are offered frameworks for understanding the process of gender and these, in turn, provide them with the ability to examine gendered communication from a critical perspective. 
  • features discussion questions to assist students in understanding the readings and encouraging them to voice their opinion.
  • asks the student to interrogate assumptions about femininity and masculinity and learn about the possibility of gender as a fluid concept.
  • enlightens students to the problems of sexism and gendered violence and helps the reader identify and fight against communication practices that perpetuate negative gender stereotypes.
  • is divided into six sections: The Process of Defining Gender; The Process of Becoming Gendered; The Process of Communicating Gender; The Process of Examining Gendered Violence; The Process of Understanding Gender in Social Systems; and The Process of Critiquing Gender.
  • features an accompanying website with a gradebook, a summary of the textbook articles, a class discussion board that includes article discussion questions from each article, practice quizzes, and links to outside sources.
