Being a woman has its advantages, but a recent survey showed that this might prove a bane when it comes to receiving CPR during an emergency in public. Women are less likely to receive help through CPR as compared to men.

A new research, which has not yet been peer-reviewed but presented at the American Heart Association’s virtual Resuscitation Science Symposium, showed that between a man and a woman in public who would need CPR, men are more likely to receive help from a stranger compared to women.

Researchers stated that there is a reluctance when it comes to women who would need CPR as people are worried that they might end up being accused of sexual assault. In other cases, they might even get accused of inflicting physical harm.
