The simple picture of the angry male and the friendly female may be appealing, but it is oversimplified. Anger is an emotion that is experienced equally frequently by men and women because of goals that are blocked and other persons that transgress social rules. However, gender role practices and expectancies do affect the way in which men and women regulate their anger in different social contexts. Both social relations and social norms may make gender-specific features, expectancies, or roles salient, and it is these gender-specific features that influence the intensity, duration or quality of one’s anger experience and expression, and the way in which one’s anger is regulated.
We especially analyze the impact of negative social appraisals of one’s anger, which can be different for men and women, depending on the specific social context.
