    The inevitability of masculine dominance

    ...Field independence, for one item.

    Steven Goldberg has published some ideas about the relative differences between masculinity and femininity.

    Physical presence (muscular physique, for example), a low voice, strong-willed decision maker, warrior, testosterone, exudes sexuality (not necessarily a philanderer as he may have a sense of duty, obligation, pride, or other more ‘important’ matters to contend with, etc.). Politically and/or economically powerful, respected, even feared. Toughness and grit to persevere, a survivor, a provider.

    These are some thoughts which come to my mind.
