Why are men more Right-Wing and why are women more Left-Wing on average?

In almost every country more men tend to hold more Right-Wing beliefs while more women tend to hold more Left-Wing beliefs.
Why do you think that is?
I know this doesn't apply to everyone, I'm wondering why there's a difference in percentages and why there's a difference between the sexes in almost every country.Why are men more Right-Wing and why are women more Left-Wing on average?

  • Because women make decisions based on emotions and men make decisions based on logic.
    This statement is not sexist and being emotional is not something to be ashaned of. It is just natural for women.
    Plus the left has been considered the more progressive ideology pushing for equality of minority and oppressed groups, women could be given as an example (in history at least).

  • i think a lot also depends on the persons field of study/occupation. A lot of people in the business department are very conservative, while the sociology department is more "progressive" for the most part. obviously there are exceptions to every rule

  • Women prefer security over freedom.

    Women benefit more off of a big state.

    Women are rarely the sole providers for their family, so they don't worry about taxes as much.

  • Simple.

    Men are more fact-oriented whereas women are more morally-oriented.

    That being, men focus on how things are and who is right.
    While women focus more on how things make people feel and who is more of a "victim" (even if said "victims" aren't actually right).

    • You are right

    • Show All
    • that's why Most healthy minded men are against Muslim Immigration and asylum seekers.
      We can smell the real threat. Women can't, because they were Always busy being pretty.

  • Because women are more sentimental. BEcause of evolution.

    Women has through evolution survived because of sharing. Sharing, wether it be by force or love, has been a necessity for most women ever since the God kicked us out of Eve's garden. The bottle-mouth-thingy made sure that women who was shared resources with has survived more often than the women who didn't. Thats why sharing is important to women.

  • Left is automatically associated with victimhood and women feel they are entitled to be on the hierarchy of the victim ladder due to social myths such as gender pay gap, rape culture and suppression from toxic masculinity. Men are not considered victims and part of the problem so we are automatically not allowed to go left unless we are soy boys.

  • Women tend to be more emotional than logical. More men work than women so they care more about low taxes. Women were once an oppressed group and they still believe they are.
    I'm personally a young woman but Right-Wing, so we do exist!

  • Most Guys Said it already:
    Men are interseted in actual facts and women are invested in emotions.

    To achieve something you need both of these.
    That's why all campaigns are supported with Numbers and driven by emotions.

  • 1) Because women have breasts. They are the nurturers. It's programmed into them to be the nurturer. It's a more emotion based desire to nurture.

    I always say
    A liberal sees a poor man and says "Oh that poor man. Let's feed him."
    A conservatives see a poor man and says "Oh that poor man. Let's figure out why he's poor."

    The first is easy. It's more emotion based and an understandable reaction.
    The second is harder. It requires more time and thought to figure out.
    The nurturer just wants to nurture, regardless of the reason.

    2) The campaigns themselves. Liberals know that they can get the vote of women more easily than the vote of men. Conservatives know they can more easily get the vote of men. So liberals target women more strongly, and conservatives target men more strongly. What this does is amplify the difference.

    3) Liberals play the victim card. Feminist ideology tries to convince women that they are victims. Some women believe it.

  • There are a lot of good answers on here, but I have one more to add:
    I think women are much more susceptible to peer pressure, than men are.
    They care more about what people think of them, than men do. Men are more inclined to not give a crap what other people think about them. If the circle of friends a woman has, are all left wing, then she will probably be afraid to be honest about her political views. She might be shunned from the group for being a traitor. When Hillary didn’t get all the women’s votes that she thought she was owed, she lashed out. Who did she blame for the lack of women’s votes? Men. Of course! What other reason could there be?
    Why are men more Right-Wing and why are women more Left-Wing on average?

  • Right wing movements in the past have never considered to properly appeal to women for mobilization purposes. They didn't believe women had any inherent value besides to sit there and look pretty. Now thats changing. Because social media bias against men, patriotic women are leading the digital fight for patriotism. Women can get away with saying things men would get banned for. Nowadays womens only movements work, mixed movements also, but mens movements dont work. You need women to succeed. We live in the era (in the developed world) with the most feminism ever and now everyone is relying on women for their social power to advance their standpoints, brands in the market and political movements alike are using women just to achieve victory.
