Absolutely, women, in general, this is not always the case, have been conditioned to express their emotions. I can even remember comparing my conversations with my brother growing up and the differences we both saw in how we were both being communicated to in terms of emotional expression.

And I think that in itself is rooted in toxic masculine learnings, the patriarchy, etc... and it is necessary to unlearn a lot of what we've been conditioned to think. (It also affects women as well, but just specifically commenting on your point).
