Nobel Scientist’s Claim Examined: Do Women Actually Cry More?: “The world recoiled as soon as it heard Nobel Laureate Tim Hunt’s now infamous quote about women in science: “Three things happen when they are in the lab: You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticize them they cry.“
Although the general consensus is that Hunt was completely out of line, studies show that overall, women do cry more than men — though not, as Hunt claimed, because they can’t take criticism, but because of various biological, social and environmental factors. Overall, science has plenty to say about sex differences in crying and why humans are unique in shedding emotionally charged tears.”
