    That's where most people get it wrong. There are minimum qualifications for every job. There we can agree. But once a job candidate has met those qualifications, he is qualified. What makes him...

    Ah, but that is overly simplistic. Women may have other relative strengths as individuals and in general as a gender. For example, it is known that women have a much higher tolerance for extreme...
