Proof Beyond A Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers, and Just About Everything Else.
Women Are Better For The Planet

Seven independent studies/surveys show that women are much more conscious of their environmental impact:

1. Women recycle more.

2. Women are more keen to be green.

3. Women eat less meat.

4. Women take shorter trips.

5. Women save gas.

6. Women are eco-fashion forward.

7. Women make more eco-purchases

The folks at Earth911.com break down each study:

1. Women recycle more. About two-thirds of households that regularly recycle credit the woman of the house as the “recycling enforcer,” according to a 2009 survey. That’s a big deal since women continue to shoulder most of the housework, experts say.

2. Women are more keen to be green. About 41 percent of women compared to 27 percent of men cite eco-friendly living as a daily goal, a nationalsurvey finds. The same study showed that more women than men want to use reusable shopping bags and reduce their household’s energy use.

3. Women eat less meat. Men consume more meat and processed foods than women, conclude two recent European studies – two categories of food that are especially resource-intensive. Women eat more fruits and vegetables, which use up less land, water and CO2, for example.

4. Women take shorter trips. Is it because they ask for directions and take a direct route? We’d like to think so, but no: men drive and fly longer distances for their jobs, the European studies show. Women use more public transportation, too, which lessens their carbon footprint.

5. Women save gas. Aggressive driving lowers gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway, says the U.S. Department of Energy, and studies repeatedly show that women are less likely to speed than men. (That’s reflected in insurance premiums, too.)

6. Women are eco-fashion forward. The lack of eco-friendly menswear isn’t a big surprise since designers overwhelmingly focus on women’s apparel, but because women also buy more clothes, they have a greater influence on the industry as a whole. Did we mention their clothes are smaller, too?

7. Women make more eco-purchases. Beyond fashion, women are more likely than men to buy eco-oriented or recyclable products, according to an international study. Again, that’s potential for a big impact since women make at least 75 percent of home purchase decisions, researchers attest.

Women Are More Efficient Soccer Players

When women play soccer, the individual interruptions, for instance for substitutions or to cheer a goal, are a lot shorter than when men play. In particular after injuries men remain on the ground significantly longer.

Women Are Becoming More Attractive Than Men

Looks like women really are the fairest of them all.  A 2009 study by Mr. Markus Jokela, a researcher at the University of Helsinki, has found that evolution has been kinder to women, in that there is a higher number of attractive females being born than men.

Women Speak More Politely Than Men

There is one stereotype that scientists and researchers alike stand behind, that women speak more politely than men. Countless studies have found that women use more honorific words (showing respect for the person you are talking to) and softening devices ( such as questions) in their speech. Women even send politer emails!

Women Have Better Memories

"There are lots of people who mistake their imagination for their memory." ~Josh Billings

Apparently more of those people are men.  According to a 2010 study performed by Cambridge University, researchers found that the female brain is better at remembering information than that of a male.  The study found a clear link between gender and memory function.

Women Are Better At Apologizing

This latest study may come as no surprise to many women ( or men!) out there.   

A study done by psychologists at the University of Waterloo found that women are actually better at apologizing than men.  The study shows that women apologize more often for mistakes or accidents while men are less likely to believe that they need to apologize for the exact same mistakes.

Women Deal With Pain Better

Are women really the weaker sex? New research that proves women are better at dealing with pain says otherwise. Professor Qasim Aziz from the Wingate Institute for Neurogastroenterology and researchers from the Queen Mary University of London studied brain activity and response of 16 men and 16 women, focusing on the gender differences in people’s response to chronic pain conditions ( like irritable bowel syndrome).
