  15. 15. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-human-beast/201008/why-women-live-longer-men Women live longer than men mostly because they avoid a risky lifestyle. Women avoid risk because they are primary care-givers.
  16. 16. 4 reasons 1. Later age at marriage led to fewer pregnancies - thereby reducing women's risk of dying in childbirth. 2. Access to food and health care within households became more equal. 3. Greater migration and trade increased the spread of disease, disadvantaging men. 4. Urban settings led to more competition for mates, causing increased male risk-taking behaviour. Through most of history, women lived shorter lives than men. That changed towards the 15th century. http://www.prb.org/Articles/2011/biodemography.aspx
