Who do you think is the barve? Man or a woman.

Brave - Bravery is not related to size , muscles or gender.I think that it is a matter of the heart and mind

I have seen many women with the heart of a lion facing the hardships in life and men looking so imposingly big and strong wilt at the smallest challenges.Is it a general pehnomenon?

I don't think bravery has anything to do with gender, I think it has to do with the individual. I am a woman, and in my life I've: Prevented a neighbour's murder Stopped a car being driven by an unhealthy relative Just narrowly missed being in the middle of a shoot-out Stopped someone from breaking into Hubby's and my apt And quite a few other things.

I agree with wonttakelong that it doesn't have much to do with gender. Most may say men. But we must remember that anything is totally possible for a woman. Especially when a child of ours is threatened! Then all bets are off and get out of the way.

I dont think being brave has anything to do with gender some people are just more brave than others but if I had to say which gender was braver in general I would say men women are logic thinkers and always like to plan ahead so when something unexpected (and scarey) comes along we dont handle it to well men on the other hand arent great planners (no offense Bala) and live more for the moment so they handle the unexpected alot better besides men seem to love adrenaline highs more than women

Frankly Bala, I personally don't think it's a man or woman thing. I've seen both men and women who have been very brave at one extreme and i've seen them at the cowardice, "chicken" types at the other extreme.

Hi bala, That has been the case sice time began, men only have strength but women are able to cope with many things but men can't. Tamara

Hi bala, I'm brave . I think men looks brave but when they face problems they will have problems solving it. Women may look weak but when they face problems they are will face and solve it. (that's only my opinion)

Is there a difference between bravery and strength? I think women are very strong and I am aware that of several situations where women have proven to be mentally stronger than men; and did you know most women tolerate pain better than men? Take a look at the monthly cycle and giving birth! As far as bravery goes, I’m not sure...It depends on the individual’s perception of courage. To me taking care of four children on your own is braver than parachuting from a plane! I am also not sure whether it is gender related; as others here have stated I think it does come down to the individual.

I agree with you Paula.You just cannot generalize this trait as many other characters.It definitely differ from person to person regardless of the gender.The idea o f the discussion is to draw more interesting responses.

To me gender has nothing to do with bravery because it always comes down to the individual.
