Coaching the Voice of the Feminine.
Gensch, Nancy
This study examined the substance, researched the history, tracked the growth, and documented the expression of the feminine voice. Patriarchy, as a critical, formative construct, is viewed from historical, religious, and societal perspectives. The emergence and growth of the Feminist era was also considered as a source of support to feminine expression. A four-question interview with 15 women, all residents of western Colorado, generated abundant information about the essence and expression of the feminine voice. Interview questions considered how feminine expression is facilitated, communicated, responded to, and further promoted. This study of the diverse and multi-faceted feminine voice suggests that self-in-relationship is one common factor in all feminine expression, and that much expression is facilitated and sustained by support, validation, and encouragement. The most natural area for further research would appear to be a study of the feminine component of the male voice. (Contains 38 references. Appended are the interview questions, transcribed interviews, and two handouts.) (Author/BT)
