Can't generalize. It depends on the issue and on the person. Resilience is needed to survive, and both genders have a survival instinct. It ends up coming down to the individual, his/her mental and physical state, and environmental conditions.6
It truly depends on the individual. Gender does not have a say in this. I have met some extremely hardwearing and determined people, women and men, who seemed to be able to withstand and outlast any obstacle thrown at them. And sometimes, you wouldn't even realize their struggle because they had such control over themselves and how they handled these issues.
I like to think that I am a very resilient person; and that "resilience" can differ by situation (physical discomfort, mental strain, etc.)2
Men are usually stronger and I think this is because in ancient times, they were the ones who hunted for food, manned the fields, harvested crops, and fought animals and invading nations. They should use their resources to help woman who were created to mind minor details since they had to take care of developing children who were naturally weaker and less intelligent then their adult counter parts.3
Resiliency has nothing to do with gender, it has to do with the mental strength, emotional capacity and experiences of a person..6
It depends on the person rather than the gender.2
I think it really depends on the individual rathe than their gender, though, in general I believe that men tend to be more resilient in terms of physical things, while women tend to be better able to cope with emotional stuff like stress/pressure.1
neither, it depends on the person's character rather than gender1
oh who cares lol. it's a mixed bag.2
I think it has to do with the person, not the gender1
Given the fact, women had endured so much in the ancient past where they were treated like next to nothing, raise children without men's help, just surviving in the harsh and limiting society, they truly have resilience. Much more over men.0
Depends on the person more so than generalizing one gender. Some can be said for both men and women.2

Do you mean emotionally resilient? I would say women tend to get over the big stuff faster than men, but men let the little stuff slide off of us better. Women tends to have a better support system when they encounter hardships, which makes them more resilient to certain things like break ups. This support system however makes a lot of women act weak when they learn to lean on it far too often over smaller issues.
Men however learn that guys are typically left to fend for themselves. That makes them more resilient to things such as getting called a name, or some similar issue. On the larger issues however guys have a much harder time dealing with their issues since they are typically on their own.1
What do you mean by resilience?
Biologically, girls are more emotionally resilient than boys. Because of the sex change that has to happen to become a boy, they are in a more mentally-vulnerable state, with a smaller, more fragile corpus callosum. Instead of nurturing this vulnerability, it is daughters who are hugged and held more, and treated more gently, while boys are told to suck everything up.
From there, boys form more distant relationships with other boys than girls do with other girls. Girls are taught to "share their feelings and insecurities" while boys are taught not to "burden others with their whining." Resulting in a much weaker social net for support.
This leads men to turn to friends as a last resort, rather than a first resort. They, instead, self-medicate with alcohol and other addictions in an attempt to handle the situation without burdening others with it. Until one day they snap and act out violently, kill themselves, or both.
They found that guys were more emotionally disturbed by neglect, and more likely to turn to drugs during a rocky relationship than women were.
Men are 4 times as likely to kill themselves as women are. In my particular age group, this is upwards of 6 times.
So yeah, I think men need a bit of consideration.

While it's going to depend a lot from person to person, I think women are more resilient. They have a higher pain tolerance, and, in my experience, are much more able to keep their cool instead of letting emotions like anger and frustration get the better of them. They tend to be more patient too. Mothers especially will have a long of resilience so that they are able to care for their children. There are a lot of single mothers with very strong hearts.1
Men... I'm biased of course, LOL!! We need a neutral alien party...
ha ha... just kidding.1
Depends on the person , regardless of gender & the situations they are enduring , so I've not voted either way. Women generally have much better support networks than men ( female friendships tend to be very close , not the case with men ) Most men are on their own in life & are expected to suck it up & deal with it.1
Depends on what's actually being measured.3
Resilient to what?1
Option C: Bacteria3
Men, why? Because they dominate the industries that requires resiliency.2
To what, hot baths? Women all the way.2
Where is the equal button :c1
Women can get through pretty much anything. They whinge and moan, but they get through it.4
That's a bit complicated. If we included women's ability to elicit help from others as part of resilience then shit gets weird. Who is being more resilient then? How do we measure that? Do we measure in "reproductive success" or mental health statistics or average life span? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯0
On average i would say men lol1
They both are.1
lol all the girls say women and boys say men1
resilient to wat? to physical trauma : men
psychological trauma: women.0
Women cry more and also tend to get more support so probably men2
Women get to cry a little and the world flocks to help them. They don't need to be resilient.2
Men more physically, women may have the edge emotionally, but thats just given how western society breeds men to be emotionally dead and mature poorly.1
Men because we've had all that practice putting up with women being fickle and inconsiderate, then when we find one who isn't and we get with her she nags the shit out of us.2
Depends on how you define resilience.5
