Gender Stereotypes and Theories (Females)

“Women are Emotional”  This is a common statement in our society about this sex. Keeping in theme with the last blog post on gender identity and how this shapes certain views I wanted to focus on the truth in this statement. Doctor D.Schmitt wrote an article titled “Are Women More Emotional Than Men?” This article is focused on an evolutionary perspective as to why emotions may have evolved differently in men and women. The articles highlight different studies that show that women experience significantly more negative emotions than men (Chaplin & Aldao, 2013). Dr. Schmitt then continues to talk about different reasoning behind emotional differences in males and females. Feel free to look through the article yourself!

Do you believe that these reasons are true? 

Are there other things in our society that may explain this phenomenon?

Is there a bias?
