Excerpt:

Women and children came first when the Titanic sunk but not when the Lusitania was torpedoed, a study has claimed.
…………………………………………………………….
Both historic tragedies involved similar vessels, passenger populations and death tolls.

Under enormous stress… animal-like aspects and survival of the fittest really come to the fore
Professor Bruno Frey
But in the case of the Titanic, it was a case of “women and children first” in the best maritime tradition
………………………………………………
'Selfish behaviour dominated'

A study of the disaster (Titanic) showed that females, children and people accompanying a child were more likely to survive than males, adults and passengers without children.

Of the 2,207 passengers and crew on board the ship when it set sail, all but 690 perished.
Children on the Titanic had a 14.8% higher chance of surviving than adults and a person accompanying a child was 19.6% more likely to survive than someone without a child.

On the Titanic a high proportion of women and children survived
Being female increased a passenger's chance of survival by more than 50%.

IN CONTRAST, fit passengers aged 16 to 35 (a.k.a. adult men) stood the greatest chance of surviving from the Lusitania disaster.

========================
Feminists: is this the result that make women happy for equality when men no longer follow chivalry code & just take care of themselves?
Feminists: you can't have it both ways, to cite equality when it advantage to you, and to claim special treatments when it go against your advantage.
