Research reveals uniqueness of brains of men and women
Though in terms of most their cognitive functions, the brains of both men and women are the same but because of structural differences of their brains as well as differences in their biological and lived experiences, women are unique in many ways.
For example, women's brains are designed to concentrate on many tasks at a time. Research reveals that most women are better off than men in multi-tasking. It is not the question of proving who is better of two, but to acquire a mind-set to recognize their uniqueness and respect diversity.

Also, women, by and large are better in verbal intelligence and they can easily learn many languages when opportunity is afforded to them. However, men are better in abstraction, linear logical thinking and problem solving. Quite a few researches have validated in average a three years old girl has three times higher vocabulary than the boy of the same age. One the other hand, men can read and analyze complex maps and designs.

Moreover, women are more apt in observing and interpreting facial expression and body language. They can catch men easily when they tell lies. They are always keen to be heard and respected as they are.

Most men are wired for status, success, solutions, be a part of larger pictures in the wider world, while women for socialization, emotional bonding, relationship, friends, family, rearing and nurturing. Research also has revealed that women work better in well knit groups and feel uncomfortable in competitive environment.

The implication of the findings of all these studies for educational institution is to respect the diversity among brains and go for inclusion and equity in learning by respecting diversity among learners.
