Ms. Purrington,
I do not understand your logic with respect to the reading/writing gender
gap. Using your approach, since women have a longer life expectancy than
men, we should no longer provide breast/cervical cancer research or
treatment for women.

ALL gender differences are related and must be dealt with. It is not
possible to define "good" and "bad" gender gaps. However, it is certainly
possible to make a connection between the reading/writing gender gap and
the life expectancy gender gap.
