Not only do men and women reflect different gender roles through communication, but they are also impacted by communication about gender, especially from the media. Issues of sexual harassment and political correctness have raised the subject of gender differences in communication to an unprecedented level of political importance, influencing our value systems along the way. This study examines the changes that have occurred between men and women and how the sexes relate to one another from social, political, and ethical perspectives. Payne argues that religious ideology is an important aspect of gendered development and that biological, psychological, social, and cultural phenomena also affect sex roles.
