  1. This gender disparity (that men talk more but claim that women hog the floor) has been well known by researchers in human communication for more than 40 years. I used to do research in this area, and my first published article was on this topic — in the ‘70s! Not only that, but the topic has appeared in popular magazines, books and newspaper articles since that time. So, I have to say I feel kind of sad that 40 years later, there’s still a popular myth out there that women do all the talking. Gender equity is an uphill battle.
