Female Leaders are Better Listeners Than Male Leaders Says Hillary and Vox

Female leaders are better listeners than male leaders according to the latest Hillary Clinton talking point. And of course the media is lapping it up as another opportunity for them to flaunt how much better than men they believe women are. Quote:
"Her gender is not only a core tenet of her campaign — she’s treating it as a competitive advantage....Clinton claims that women lead in substantively different ways — and that those differences are an advantage for her.
"I just think women in general are better listeners, are more collegial, more open to new ideas and how to make things work in a way that looks for win-win outcomes," she said...
Women in leadership roles, on average, are more cooperative and person-centric than men"

We do however know that women speak 13,000 more words per day than men on average so the idea that women are both listening more and speaking more than men on average sounds highly unlikely to me. Quote:
"Women do talk more than men — a lot more.
According to a new study by the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the average woman speaks about 20,000 words a day. The average man, meanwhile, speaks a mere 7,000 words."
