Why Women Are Better at Everything

Why Women Are Better at Everything – TIME Healthland: "Recently in the Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch columnist David Weidner noted that women 'do almost everything better' than men — from politics to corporate management to investing.

Weidner cites a new study by Barclays Wealth and Ledbury Research, which found that women were more likely than men to make money in the market, mostly because they didn't take as many risks. And why are they risk-averse? Because they're not as overconfident as men, the study found."

Not everything. How about writing your name in the snow?

Or putting the lid on a jar properly?

I'd say women and men, in general, are equally adept at writing, from the reading that I've been doing.

I've know a few who could do so in the snow, if pressed (or a relevant similar sounding word in UK slang). Chillier for them, though.
