The findings may explain why women live longer and stay more mentally sharp at old age than men.
Flu vaccine seems more effective in women; men recover faster from the flu.
Sorry — no sexy selfies here, just science.
Things are still murky when it comes to the gender pay gap.
Meanwhile, women are crippled with doubt.
Celebrating the work of female scientists.
There were no significant differences in the decline of lung function between men who worked in the cleaning business and non-cleaning men.
A new paper tries to explain this discrepancy.
Help them help us.
I can’t even walk and text without hitting lamp posts.
There might be a way to help alpha males understand when women are interested.
Can a woman without a lab coat still be a scientist?
In neighborhoods with high crime rates, past research showed that women who perceive they are at risk will generally be attracted to physically formidable and dominant mates (PPFDM). Yes, I know, it’s a hilarious classification. But while this finding isn’t all that surprising, there’s a new research by a team at University of Leicester, UK which suggests this is true even when there isn’t much or any risk of physical confrontation at all. In other words, women who feel vulnerable or victimized no matter the circumstances will find comfort in dating PPFDM (now you have a new shorthand to call your meatier friends; enjoy!).
When you think about it from a biological point of view….Menopause doesn’t make that much sense, does it?
A new paper published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology examines women’s efforts to guard their mates from sexual competition — especially other ovulating females.
We all know that men like to impress the fairer members of our species, and this permeates into almost everything we do: we want to drive the shiniest car on the block, crack the funniest jokes 24/7 and write for ZMEScience so we can impress the ladies at parties. In essence, no matter how unlikely it is to actually impress, if a man has a choice between doing something and doing that something over the top so he can show off to women, you can bet your right arm he’s gonna do the latter.
The study recorded the biological responses (a fancy wording for arousal) of a sample of 345 women who watched videos of nude males and females. And the data is quite surprising: 82% of participants responded sexually to both men and women.
Russia is locking up six women together to simulate a trip to the moon and back. But no one is taking this too seriously, it seems.
A breakthrough research found that male and female mice use different cells to signal pain. This could explain why both more women suffer from chronic pain than men, and pain relief medication seems to respond differently in women.
A new report highlights the reprehensible state of women working in STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics— where they’re not only under represented, but also under constant pressure to over perform. The report also stresses how sexism and racism is “still a thing” in labs, universities and technology companies. In fact, there’s seems to be an entrenched thinking that women
