More about this Title: Title on disc: War of the sexes: emotion
Summary: When asked to describe birth from a baby's perspective, a group of women talk about fear, elation, and other feelings, while their male counterparts summon only physical sensations. This program explores the divergent emotional tendencies of men and women, throwing gender differences into bold relief through spontaneous theatrical exercises and expert commentary. Featuring leading scientists and researchers, including anthropologist Helen Fisher, sociolinguist Deborah Tannen, psychiatrist Harrison Pope, neurologist Ruben Gur, and psychologists David Geary, Vikki Stark, and Daniel Perusse, the program juxtaposes scholarly commentary from these experts with compelling group-dynamic experiments that measure male and female strengths, weaknesses, prejudices, and potential. While confirming that expression of and reaction to emotion varies according to sex, the program also demonstrates that the male psyche values emotion no less than the female as suggested by a collaborative storytelling session in which men craft the more evocative tale.
