Feminist Pychology

Asha Rani (Author)

Feminist psychology puts a strong emphasis on women's rights. A major topic of study within feminist psychology is that of gender differences in emotion. In general, feminist psychologists view emotion as culturally controlled and state that the differences lie in the expression as emotion rather than actual experience. The way a person shows his or her emotions is defined by socially enforced display rules which guide the acceptable forms of expression for particular people and feeling. Stereotypes of emotion view women as the more emotional sex. However, feminist psychologists point out that women are only viewed as experiencing passive emotions such as sadness, happiness, fear, and surprise more strongly. Conversely, men are viewed as more likely to express emotions of a more dominant nature, such s anger. Feminist psychologists believe that men and women are socialized throughout their lifetimes to view and expres emotions differently. This book might serve as a catalyst for futher innovative work in psychology. This text encourages such moves by its own irreverence for traditions and its overt efforts to break down resistances to creativity in the field.
