Woman's Vocal Cords are Shorter

Sparks, quoted in Homemade, Dec., 1984

Because a woman's vocal cords are shorter than a man's she can actually speak with less effort than he can. Shorter vocal cords not only cause a woman's voice to be more highly pitched, but also require less air to become agitated, making it possible for her to talk more with less energy expended.
