Male Gender Role and Widowers book
When I tell people that I study widowers, their comments and questions often
relate to the inf uence of gender: “Men grieve differently-don’t they?” “Men
seem to move on so quickly,” and “That’s just how men are.” The popular percep-
tion is that being a man will affect his g rief experience. I agree with this view-
point; a widower’s grief is inf uenced by his sense of what it means to be a man.
