Abstract

In line with Hochschild’s (1979, 1983, 1990) ideas on ‘feeling’ and ‘framing rules’, and ‘surface’ and ‘deep acting’, there is still disagreement over whether men experience emotions in the same way as women and are less likely to show them or whether, due to different patterns of socialisation, men and women’s emotions develop in different ways in different cultural contexts. However we can confidently say that if differences do exist between men’s and women’s emotional lives, they are patently not predetermined from birth. The question, then, is how we might be able to explain these differences.
