Do women lack empathy compared to men?

Studies show that intuitive people show less empathy compared to people who think with logical reasoning: https://digest.bps.org.uk/2016/08/10/more-analytic...

Studies also show that women in general are more intuitive than men: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/cutting-ed...

So does that mean that women actually, contrary to popular opinion, actually have less empathy compared to men?

    Women will never be equal to men....until they can walk down the street bald and with a big beer gut and still think they’re sexy.  Is that what you’re talking about...lack of empathy?.
