Women: express yourselves

        Women who are uncomfortable expressing themselves, particularly negative emotions such as anger, are more likely to end up feeling even more angry and may also be vulnerable to eating disorders, according to two separate studies.

Numerous studies have shown emotions such as anger, hostility and frustration, when not constructively expressed, are associated with greater risks for depression and even physical conditions such as heart disease.


 In the, first, researchers asked men and women to view two emotional film clips. During the first film, some were asked to suppress angry feelings, others were asked to express them, and still others were asked to substitute any anger with a happy memory. They were then shown the second clip and were told to respond however they felt spontaneously.

Researchers reported women who suppressed their anger felt more like swearing than men. And the women who denied their anger felt more outraged, upset and disgusted than their male counterparts. The researchers report in many cultures, women are under great pressure to conceal their emotions.

The reality is that women ,no matter how high in power they may get in their life, have a kind of 


people-pleasing syndrome which involves, among other things, an addiction to getting everyone's approval and getting everyone to like them. The price of nicey they pay is the inability to deal with anger in an appropriate way. Conversely, niceness in men, is associated with weakness while men who express anger are associated with leadership.

The second study interviewed 820 female undergraduate students. Researchers found depression and alexithymia, the inability to identify and describe one's feelings, directly influenced a woman's      risk for developing the eating disorders anorexia or bulimia. Family conflict, child or emotional abuse and neglect also contributed to a young woman's risk.

Several experts said asserting oneself requires skills that can be learned at any age, regardless of a person's emotional background. Too often, women perceive anger   as  a bad emotion that should be avoided. In fact, anger and constructively expressing other negative feelings can he a very positive, empowenng act.

Despite the shortage of good female role models, there  are signs of hope that mainstream culture is working to change these ingrained attitudes toward women. TV is now trying to tell women to be a lot more assertive, to speak up for themselves, which shows that' women do have choices.
