    It depends in what sense. Women technically can concieve a child at birth, though neither would survive, but knowing that means that women age through maturity at much larger rates then men, but it seems the physical years of age take a larger toll on men. Just look at the ratio of males to women in thage group of 60 that are bald/balding.

    Not sure if this answers the question but look inside any old people's home and most of them will be women. So, presumably men generally die before women.

    Art Linklater (if you're too young to remember him, you're younger than me!) once asked a 5-year-old boy why women live longer than men and the little boy replied, "because they don't have to live with women!"
