There are obviously going to be outliers, but what are things that women do better than men?

For example, women clearly tend to live longer, eat healthier etc. What else can you think of where women tend to outperform men?

@Robert Gentel,
I've seen a study that says that women score better in four of the five senses: hearing, touch, taste and smell. I think they clearly multitask better. I think girls mature significantly faster than boys. Watch a group of six year olds play soccer: a girls' team will actually coordinate their efforts and play together while the boys will run all over the place. My observation is that by age 9 or 10, that advantage is completely gone.

@sozobe,
ebrown p is referencing a scene in Life of Brian in which the characters have the following humorous exchange:

Quote:
Stan: I want to have babies.
Reg: You want to have babies?!?!
Stan: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.
Reg: But ... you can't HAVE babies!
Stan: Don't you oppress me!
Reg: I'm not oppressing you, Stan. You haven't got a womb! Where's the fetus gonna gestate? You gonna keep it in a box?




I like the part where the man wants to have babies.

Smell is the obvious answer. Most professional 'smellers' are women, who tend to have far more accurate and perceptive noses then men do.

Women can perform mind numbingly manual repetitive tasks using their hands and eyes with less errors than men.

I think there are actual studies that show women are better at multi-tasking. It seems to go back to our primitive roots when women would be caring for children, gathering nut and berries, picking herbs and keeping an eye out for hazards like pouncing cougars. Today that translate into pushing a shopping cart with a strapped in baby, talking on a cell phone, picking groceries and making sure her four year old doesn't go off with a stranger. Men are better at tasks that benefit from intense focus like hunting or fishing. Today that translates into men going hunting and fishing.

Aren't women generally proven to be more flexible?
