Researchers have compiled a list of words that more women than men can define. There are, also, words that more men than women are aware of, too.
Here are some of the words that more women know than men: Doula, Freesia, tulle peplum, chignon, and sateen.
Words that more men than women know: milliamp, yakuza, howister, thermistor, azimuth. If I were a part of this study, I could, as a woman, vouch that I do not know the definitions of those words!
