Women’s words…let's talk things through! (starting at $39)

In this 90-minute workshop, we will look at research and poems regarding women’s words and men’s ways. Findings show that women talk more polity than men, using tag questions and empty adjectives. But: which findings are (still) facts, and which ones seem fairy tales? Say, is an interruption just a misunderstanding or a conversation controller?

We will touch upon theories by Lakoff, Stokoe and Cameron (a.o.), and upon poetry by Eliot, Katrin and Rich (a.o.)…with time to write ourselves: about women’s worlds, in women’s words!
