I remember Eckhart Tolle talking about this in either the power of now or his new earth. I vaguely remember that he said that women relive all the accumulated aggression that have endured from the male oppression in this period. Unfortunately I can only share the male perspective, but my limited experience is that during this period women share their pain with the men in one way or another.
Hope this helps and all the best,
