Abstract:Some feminists argue that women 's understanding of politics and their political performance is distinctive from that of men. Men attaches great importance to rationality while women to emotion; men never refuse violence while women welcome compromises; men tend to exclude heresy while women to tolerate differences. The contrasts between these political views, although dramatic, suggest exaggerated sexual segregation. However, people should face up to these differences anyway.
