Women vs Men: Who writes better?

Creativity defianceFor those who have been with me in history classes, they know of my feminist side. I get a little passionate about equality between the sexes, and when studying women in history, have gotten in a few heated discussions about the plight of some historical female figures. I guess it’s my competitive nature or something. While I believe there should always be equality between gender, I know that this may not be a true biological condition, nor could it be logical. There are just some things men do better than women, and some things women do better than men. Women:

  • Multitasking problem solvers (that means balancing work, babies, housework, dinner and homework with kids, etc.)
  • Nurturing
  • Juggling Household finances
  • Dirty Diapers
  • Runny Noses


  • Linear problem solvers
  • Heavy lifting
  • Christmas Lights on the roof
  • Trash
  • Stuff that goes wrong with cars

Somewhere in there falls creativity. I had always assumed that in writing, both sexes were pretty equal. But recently, a friend showed me an article on “The Daily Beast” that discussed the distinction of creative writing between women and men.  The reported outcome was of a survey conducted by Grammarly. Grammarly (a grammar checking website) polled 3000 plus people to answer the age-old question, “Which gender has the better writers?” I think you need to read the article. You’ll be surprised. Happy writing!!!
