Nature has endowed women with equal probably more physical enduring capacities than even men. See their survival rates. The irony is that they want to be a part of male dominated instead of creating their own regime.

In all the walks of life and in every country Men Feel Threatened By Women Who Are Intelligent, Single And Independent. Even in the USA women are expected to act less intelligent to protect the men ego. Many successful women while attending a company meeting have been mistaken for an office assistant and asked to serve coffe.
In that case no one will feel threatened by you.
