Now, from a purely physical standpoint, what might make a woman more or less vulnerable to hard impact than a man? I've read that women's skulls often don't provide the same protection against cranial injury as men's (but the source was the not-so-scientific Reader's Digest, so take that for what it's worth.) But women usually have more subcutaneous fat; does that insulate internal organs better?

What about bone density, etc.? Are women likelier to suffer fractures?
