Development of the Self Voice and Mind Female Persuasion

Oct 20, 2007
The book entitled A Women's Way of Knowing is an interesting book that has gained a lot of attention as it tries to address how women think as well as assimilate data. It put together information acquired from the interviews of various women.

The interviewers asked the women a number of questions pertaining to the way the think as well as relate to new information. The data is compiled and process and the conclusion acquired linked the perception of the women to education and knowledge.

The book silence is heralded as the way to knowing. Women are portrayed as followers who believe in a figure of authority which in most cases were men. The women acknowledged that they fell in a certain category and were stereotyped as weak.

They blindly follow and are socially engineered to believe that they are insignificant and their opinions do not matter and that they cannot voice their opinions. There is little room for aggressively opinions, so we must focus on changing to a positive way of thinking. The women have been made to believe that they are inferior be it by their families and have then passed it on to their kids as girls pick up on their mothers what it is to be a woman. Women are portrayed as passive and trusting as just willing to accept other peoples` word as true.

Women in this book are classed as falling into a number of categories.
The received knowledge, the women in this class acquire their knowledge through word of mouth and these women have very little or no self-respect. Their confidence is very limited hence find it hard to find their voice. The belief strongly held by the women is that whatever they get through word of mouth as well as they read from books is true , coming up with their own opinions is beyond their scope of reason. They have no self-belief within themselves.

The women with subjective knowledge, the women in this category have their own way of thinking and the women acknowledge that they have brains as well as opinions. These very confident women are very stubborn and unwilling to shift from their position be it opinion or otherwise.

According to philosophers, these women tend to have a haughty attitude, which is short of facts to prove. The women in this category are characterized by conflict with their male counterparts as well as struggling relationships. Most modern women tend to have behavior patterns that differ from these types of women.

Procedural knowledge is often defined as the voice of reason. Women with this way of thinking are more levelheaded and understand their position in society be it their strong points or vice versa. This category can be split into two parts, the connected and the separated. The connected part, this way of thinking women are part of a larger group such a s a support group and they gander at a problem and find a solution sharing wisdom as well as help . They share their collective knowledge.

In contrast to the above, the separated version of procedural knowledge, the women are more inclined to carefully scrutinizing each theory before they accept it. The passions in such groups usually run high.

The final category, which was interviewed, was the women at peace with themselves that are confident enough to be submissive but still have their own voice and can share their point of views and willing to concede if they view their argument not valid. These are independent well-balanced women
