In terms of behavior, a study by economists showed that in cultures where women are dominant, they tend to be more competitive than men. Meta-analytic evidence on gender differences in leadership aspirations showed that differences are decreasing over time — women are closing the gap in terms of wanting to be leaders — suggesting that the gap is more due to society than to biology.
