This may be true but I think that women have to have faith in their education and experience and not feel like they can't speak up at work without a qualifier. And there is surely a difference between verbal tics and actual speaking style (which is probably a combo of parents, area where you were raised and generation).
But I absolutely hate "upspeak" or "uptalk" with younger women. I can't take anyone seriously who ends nearly every sentence as a question. (I had this happen in a hospital with two female residents and I took their supervisor aside and told her to help them to get out of this habit because it compromises their professional demeanor)
This article at NY Magazine says that men do all these things. My experience is that I find very few men ever engage in these speaking habits and that this is largely a female issue. But they say that if you strip all the "just", "like", etc. out of female language:
It quickly became apparent that if we were to take the advice of all of our detractors — carefully enunciating, limiting our likes, moderating our tone to avoid vocal fry — our podcast would sound very different. It would be stripped of its cadence and its meaning; it would lose the casual, friendly tone we wanted it to have and its special feeling of intimacy. It wouldn’t be ours anymore.No, it won't and millions of women who don't have these kinds of tics are evidence of that.
