Differences Between Women's and Men's Decision-Making
I think the women should make the decisions I would always like to be very fair.
Kitty, Age 91, 1990
Well, to me, a woman's decision would be far better.
Mary, Age 84, 1990
Men are not as considerate of all the factors concerned--they look at things as black or white, right or wrong; women make decisions more from the heart, they look at all the different colors, the shade of issues.
Patsy, Age 54, 1990
I think women make more sensible decisions about everything; men make more of a demand, women give advice; whatever any man says he thinks is definitely right and you're wrong; I don't think men are afraid of hurting anybody in getting what they achieve, whereas women are ever sensitive to other people's feelings and they can sort of step back a bit, whereas men just batter on ahead.
Sharon, Age 18, 1990
I think that females, because before they never had any leading roles, perhaps tend to tackle decisions or problems on a more personal view and not to take into account what would look best, taking more into account what would be best.
