Are women the 'weaker' sex?

My Carmesi sent this email to their subscribers on November 18, 2022.

Hi my-carmesi,


Women have always been deemed the “weaker sex”. Do you think it’s true?


Many may believe that a woman’s physical strength is lesser than that of a man’s but here’s a fun fact- there are a number of areas where we outdo them! Just take a look at these amazing facts about the female body that can easily challenge this mindset!


1. Women can remember more stuff

Studies have shown that women have better memories. Doesn’t that explain why women are always better at bringing up something from way back in the past during arguments? There was one study which revealed that better recall in women may be a result of the way little boys and girls are taught to tell stories.


It showed that when mothers ask their kids to talk about the details of their day, they’re actually training the kid to remember things. And, since gender norms orient girls to be more elaborate than boys, it can be the reason behind the difference in the ability to recall more stuff.


2. Women have more intricately hard-wired brains

It was found that women have more interconnected brains than men. This leads to a better ability to make social connections and adapt to routines more easily. Fascinating, isn’t it?


3. Women can see more colours

According to research, women have a better colour vocabulary than men. In a particular study, both men and women were asked to break down the hue of a colour and assign percentages of red, yellow, blue and green to it.


The results revealed that women were better able to detect subtle gradations in colour than men. The colours that looked identical to men were better distinguished by women!


4. Women have a stronger immune system

Women have a genetic material called microRNA located on the female X chromosome. The main function of these cells is to turn off specific genes. These may be responsible for giving women an immune system boost.


It may be true, you know since another study showed women are less affected by cancer as compared to men! Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3508426/


5. Women can tolerate more pain

Even though pain can be subjective, studies have shown that women are better at handling pain and discomfort. According to a study, men rated their pain higher than women when conducting a series of tests.


It was also observed that men were more stressed and hypersensitive when facing each individual pain test as compared to women! No wonder women are the ones that give birth and suffer through period pain and still come out in one piece!


6. Women are more flexible

The muscles and tendons in women’s bodies are seen to contain more elastin, while their lower spine has evolved to accommodate childbirth. Also, their bodies have evolutionarily adapted to childbearing, which has rendered greater flexibility and range of motion in the pelvic area. These result in greater flexibility in women!

Isn’t it amazing how awesome our bodies can be? The next time you’re feeling demotivated about yourself, just remember how much you’re capable of and how amazing it is to be a woman!


Until next time,
