"gender" systems = vowel harmony coalescing with stress changes?

Hi.  I just thought that is a reasonable explanation for "gender" in
Indo-European languages.  And probably in other "gendered" language families
such as the Afro-Asiatic family.

Are there any books, articles, etc, that ask this sort of question?
