Research on women’s anger is relative scarce. In this study the authors examined differences in anger experienceand expression in women across three distinct age groups: 18-30, 31-49, and 50 and above. The authors used theState-Trait Anger Expression Inventory-2 (STAXI-2) to survey a sample of 239 women in the United States andCanada. The groups were established according to hypothesized transitional life stages of changingresponsibilities and expectations. A MANCOVA was used to test the effect of age and covariates of education,employment, relationship status, and country of residence on participants’ experience and expression of anger.The authors discuss limitations relative to sampling strategies as well as sample demographics and size, anddiscuss implications the implications of the findings for practice and future research.
