Women are often misdiagnosed. They experience 50% higher rates of heart attack misdiagnosis, because they get less typical-symptoms, like subtle chest pressure or tightness in the chest, rather than the male presentation of full-blown chest pain.
Car crash dummies are built with a male standard, meaning that in car crashes, women are almost 50% more likely to be seriously injured than men.
There’s always absurdly long lines at women’s restrooms because they’re built unfairly with not enough stalls.
Speech-recognition software is 70% more likely to accurately recognise male voices. When Siri was released in the US, she could find prostitutes and Viagra suppliers, but not abortion providers. If you told her you’d been [sexually assaulted], she’d reply “I don’t know what you mean by that”.
It’s considered totally normal for women to take birth control and deal with all of these side effects, but barely anyone ever talks about making birth control for men.
A lot of medicines are tested exclusively on men, so women end up getting prescribed doses that are way too much for them.
Head rests in cars – they push women’s head forwards funny, especially if they have their hair up. It’s not comfortable or safe.
Women are under diagnosed with autism because the diagnostic criteria was written for men and they haven’t bothered updating it.
Equipment at the gym – there’s a lot of machines women can’t use because they can’t be adjusted to them properly.
CPR dummies are almost always male-bodied, so people who are trained CPR often don’t know how to perform it properly on women.
Keyboards/mouses are built with male sizes in mind, increasing rates of carpal tunnel/tendinitis in females.
Someone in college did their thesis on how armchairs are built for 6 feet tall men.
All hand tools are sized to men. At the box lumber places the work gloves are only size L and XL. Where are the S and M sizes? At the cleaning aisle!
Fitness monitors (like fitbits) often don’t accurately count steps when women are walking strollers (or anybody, for that matter, women just do it more often).
