Last month, the Marist Poll asked 1,004 U.S. residents: From which country did the United States win its independence? The results varied based on region, household income, race, age, and gender—while 81 percent of men responded that the U.S. won independence from Great Britain, only 67 percent of women could say the same. Twenty-eight percent of women were "unsure," compared to 12 percent of men. I'd love to see a study charting women's "unsure" levels across different categories [Via The Awl].
