Both men and women have been poorly served by the gender socialization they have received, Men have been encouraged to be more overt with their anger. That's why when boys have a conflict on the playground, they act it out with their fists. For girls, acting out in that way is not encouraged. Women usually receive the message that anger is unpleasant and unfeminine. Therefore, their anger may be misdirected in passive-aggressive maneuvers such as sulking or destructive gossip.
