Of course this is true.And that is the reason why girls do much better in 
in schools with only girls. Because the teachers in the classrooms, male or 
female would pay much more attention to the boys in mixed classes.
This bias dissappears when only girls are present.
And that is why I say: Judge women and men separately. I am sick and tired 
of having to develop male attitudes and characteristics in order to 
be able to make a career.
