Alright, first and foremost, appearances aren't the end-all-be-all for EITHER gender. One can compensate for appearance with other traits, and this holds true for both genders.
However, I do agree with the notion that, for a woman, it is more difficult to rely on non-appearance-related factors. In general, women have to work harder to rely on these factors or need these factors to be better-polished to use them effectively than a similarly-situated man would.
However, a woman has more "tools" at her disposal when it comes to appearance-related factors than a man does. Clothes, make-up, even surgical enhancements are far more available and geared towards women. To that end, even if a woman is sorely lacking in other departments, she has more tools inside her appearance toolbox than a man does in his. AND, it is much easier for her to use these tools to enhance her attractiveness than it is for a man to enhance his using the tools in his non-appearance-related toolbox. Charisma and salaries are harder to change than outfits, after all.
That's the first part of my food-for-thought spiel. The second part is this:
Regardless of who has more tools to use in attracting A partner, the amount of tools necessary to attract a QUALITY partner are definitely closer to equal for both genders.
If a man is relying solely on his social status to attract a partner, sure, he will attract A partner, but will that be a QUALITY partner?
Likewise, if a woman is relying solely on her looks to attract a partner, sure, she will attract a partner, but what could be said about the quality of said partner?5THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Men have more tools. He can be funny, nice personality, super confident, high social status, good job, etc...
Women have their looks and that's what men care about. A guy doesn't care about her social status, what kind of job she has, whether or not she's funny, etc..3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
