In the 1994 screenplay for “Little Women,” Jo March makes the following observation about men and women:

“I find it poor logic to say that because women are good, women should vote.  Men do not vote because they are good;

They vote because they’re male, and women should vote, not because we are angels and men are animals, but because 

we are human beings and citizens of this country.”

It’s a wonderful statement about equality between the sexes but science keeps coming up with differences. Here are is a list of the most recent discoveries about where women excel:    


  • More accurate in pounding with hammers than men 
  • Better drivers than men
  • Better investors, being less impulsive than men
  • Better students
  • Better at remembering things
  • Better newscasters
  • Better at dealing with a broken heart 

The April 17, 2011 edition of “Women’s Day” reported these results. Okay, it’s nice to gloat a little, especially over the findings about who’s best at swinging a hammer. But don’t go away mad, guys. Most women would agree with the French: Vive La Difference!
