Abstract/Summary This paper contributes to the debate on gender and emotions by examining gender stereotypes regarding emotion and emotional expression and exploring possible reasons for these differences. Research undertaken in two studies examines male and female emotional expression in the context of consumer complaints to a third party. We demonstrate that while there are limited gender differences regarding the emotion driven motivation of people to complain to a third party, there are significant differences in the way males and females express these emotions, some of which correspond with gender stereotypes and some of which contradict them.
