Firstborn daughters . . . receive relatively more respect than their same-sex siblings" (51)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Birth order in cross-cultural perspective, 1974 - 4 Variables

Empirical analysis also shows that women are blamed for childlessness more often than men, which the authors suggest could be due to women’s lower status.
