Summary

Do Women express their feelings more than men? Popular stereotypes say they do, but in this provocative book, Leslie Brody breaks with conventional wisdom. Integrating a wealth of perspectives and research - biological, sociocultural, developmental - her work explores the nature and extent of gender differences in emotional expression, as well as the endlessly complex question of how such differences come about.
