Women can talk longer with less effort than can men. That has been proved repeatedly. Why? Because the vocal cords of women are shorter than those of men and so release less air through them to carry the sound. It’s all a matter of breathing.

Studies conducted by University of Southern California psychologists show that women are more subject to feeling depressed and “down in the dumps” than men.

Psychological studies show conclusively that, while emergencies tend to upset a woman more, in a real crisis she is likely to remain calmer than the average male.


Women’s hemlines go up as the economy gets better. They stay put when nothing happens in commerce. They go down when business drops off. Question is why. Nobody knows why, evidently, but the record indicates the pattern dates back more than 65 years.
