Of course, men are different from women. For a woman, for instance, it is rather difficult to disclaim the motherhood of a child. In this sense, Steve Jobs had a daughter, Lisa, but he didn't accept her fatherhood for many years nor did take responsibility until she was grown up.

However, and concerning the leading question of this blog, I would consider one single aspect of general validity: Each person is unique, with special talents and gifts. What differs between people are the chances and opportunities for an individual to unfold his or her potentials. Everyone makes unique experiences, and each epoch offers unique chances for certain ideas and projects. And this is true for both males and females. So, even a brother of Steve Jobs, even a twin-brother, may not have made his career; neither a sister or even a twin-sister.
But I don't think this is a gender-specific problem. It’s a problem of an optimal fit between a person's potential and an open time window for innovative developments.
