This paper explores how stereotypes about female and male emotional expressions impact perceptions. Namely, it looks at how females, regardless of age, are evaluated more negatively than males for expressing anger in achievement contexts like school and workplaces. The paper reviews three articles of the pertinent stereotype gender literature. It also outlines the experimental design of the proposed research.

From the Paper:

"Women and men have emotions and emotional reactions to various life events. It is possible that the internal emotional processes and interpretation of life events is no more or less different between women and men as between two women. That is to say, each individual, regardless of their gender, is capable of having unique emotional responses to any given event. This premise, however, contradicts the widely held belief that women are somehow more emotional than men (Fabes & Martin, 1991; Hutson-Comeaux & Kelly, 2002) and that women and men have predictive emotional responses to specific life events (Fischer, 2000)."
