Women's Voices

"To most women conversation is, for the most part, 'a language of rapport,' with which they have learned since childhood to establish connection and negotiate relationships, often for greater closeness. What women emphasize in their talk are their similarities with other people and their comparable experiences ('I'm just like that,' 'the same thing happened to me'). Women also have interests in achievement or status goals, says Tannen, but they tend to go after them 'in the guise of connection.'" (Tubbs & Moss, Human Communication, p. 92)
