Pragya Agarwal

Hysterical: Exploding the Myth of Gendered Emotions

Venue: Public Hall

16 September 2022 10:00 am

Emotions can be difficult things to define, yet we all recognise them. How we interpret them and act on them has been heavily gendered, as far back as Ancient Greek and Roman times and - despite the improvements in societal equality - continues to be today. The respected behavioural scientist, founder of research think-tank The 50 Percent Project that examines gender and racial inequities around the world, Pragya Agarwal dives deep into the history and science that have determined the gendering of emotions to ask whether there is any truth in the notion of innate differences between the male and female experience of emotions. She examines the impact this has on us all, and how a future where emotions are ungendered might look. Talking to Clare Clark
