According to Zamosky's article:

It's easier to report stress rather than depression simply because the catch-all term "stress" is seen as more socially acceptable.

Men moreso than women are more apt to demonstrate fatigue and complain about physical problems when depressed.

Depression = a reversible form of brain failure.

Anger =/= hostility.

Stress can be either a symptom OR the cause of depression.

Substance abuse is attributable to cultural bias.

Depression slows down the ability to make decisions.

Depression is not a normal part of the aging process in humans.

This is an excellent link. Disorders do not always present the same way in women and men, a fact often ignored. Another (although different) example is Chlamydia infection; women are more likely to be asymptomatic or report constitutional symptoms (i.e. generic vague things like fever or headache) than men are, who're more likely to present with urethral discharge and such.
