Differences in the communication styles adopted by men and women have been an important issue in the field of communication. The extensive discussions on gender-based communication styles in the past were rooted to the belief system that men and women socialize in different ways in different contexts which shaped their speech behaviors and communication styles differently. With globalization, however, the patterns of discourses that men and women participate in are changing fast. Under such circumstances, the various issues regarding the viability of different speech behaviors of men and women are highly contested. Consequently, the speech behaviors of men and women in the modern times are expected to have more commonalities rather than differences, and understanding gender communication from a different perspective is the need of the hour. Gender at present is understood from a different perspective; it is not equated with the biological categories of sex.
