The Fairer Sex Is the Stronger Sex and Here Is Why!

Emotional reasoning falls short of explaining female dominance over males, but science has stepped in to make it crystal clear.

Women Rule the Roost!

Patriarchal societies are quickly disintegrating, and not because the men will it so. Women are empowered and they mean business. Men always try to defend their superiority by claiming to be the best cooks, athletes, providers and academicians. But the jury is out on that, and science has quickly revealed that the male argument is as porous as Swiss Cheese. The fact of the matter is that women are the stronger sex, the smarter sex, and the more attractive sex by far. But that’s just a sampling of the many unique areas that women rule the roost.

#1 Women thrive in leadership positions

The ‘emancipation’ of women was perhaps the biggest boon to mankind. Once the patriarchal shackles were removed and women were allowed to follow their life passions and pursuits, they quickly overtook men. Consider for a moment the leading figures in politics and business: Angela Merkel, Hillary Clinton, Suzie Orman, Christine Lagarde, Marissa Mayer, Oprah Winfrey, Tory Burch and scores of others. Chances are you may not even know half the names on that list, but these are power players in the world. This just goes to show that women have just as much ability, perhaps more in leadership circles than men do. The number of women rising through the ranks is quickly gaining momentum and it’s not simply because they are prettier than their male counterparts!

#2 Women are far less susceptible to violent crime than men

Don’t get us wrong here – women can be dangerous, especially those with violent tendencies. But overall it’s the men who are driven by stupidity, testosterone and pigheadedness that end up committing the most violent acts in society. The Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report from 1998/1999/2000 indicates that the number of female offenders as a percentage of all violent offenders was just 14%. Of all arrestees that number was just 22%, and of all convicted felony defendants was just 16%. In correctional populations, women comprise just 16% of the overall population. That just goes to show that men are far more likely to be violent offenders or locked up in correctional institutions than women. Certainly not a stat that men should be proud of.

#3 Women are far better at handling finances than men

This is an interesting one, because if you ask men they always tell you that women are squandering all of their money. But this begs the question: Are women smarter than men if they are doing this to them – definitely! But on a more serious note, Barclays Wealth and Ledbury Research concluded that women were better investors than men. On average, women generated far greater returns on their investments, largely due to the fact that men were driven by testosterone-fuelled impulses. This resulted in men taking far more risks than women. More importantly, women have a better idea of how to divest from bad investments than men do (Merrill Lynch 2005).

#4 Women have greater life expectancy than men

The heat map above concludes what scientists have known for a long time: women live longer than men. In fact, the New England Centenary study concluded that 85% of people who live beyond 100 are females. That’s no coincidence! In most cases, women will outlive their male spouses by 5 years. Men will be none too impressed with this statistic and will often claim that the stresses placed on them by their women are the reasons for their early demise in the first place.

#5 Women are far superior poker players than men

At first glance, this may appear to be totally bogus. You’re probably thinking of poker stars in Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, Chris Moneymaker and other poker hotshots. But the fact of the matter is that Annette Obrestad – a relative unknown in the poker world upended the entire World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) in London back in 2007 that it heralded the dawning of a new time: Female power poker players. Consider Vanessa Selbst and Cathy Liebert as cases in point. Vanessa made her first live cash in 2003 and has earned an incredible $11,728,255. Kathy Liebert made her first cash in 1994 and has earned herself $5,983,412. The numbers may be low, but they are growing fast!
