We’ve all heard the sayings such as girls should be ‘sugar and spice and all things nice’, while ‘boys don’t cry’. Since antiquity, the way that we interpret other people’s emotions and act upon our own has been influenced by society’s ideas around gender. While emotions can be difficult to define, the narratives that we construct around them have been powerful.
Pragya Agarwal explores the history and science that has determined why our emotions have been gendered and examines whether there is any truth to the idea that men and women experience emotions differently.
Pragya Agarwal is a behaviour and data scientist and Visiting Professor of Social Inequities and Injustice at Loughborough University. She is the award-winning author of (M)otherhood, Sway and Wish We Knew What To Say, as well as a book for children, Standing up to Racism.
