Also life expectancy can’t be used as a measure of ‘privilege’ because even though women live longer, they are more likely to be in institutional care, have a higher number of diseases, have a higher incidence of incontinence, depression, visual impairment, arthritis (rheumatoid and osteo-), cataracts, osteoporosis and hyper/hypothyroidism (source), and have a greater loss in their ability to do day to day tasks (source).
