If the wider hips are not a disadvantage, then it seems to be time to reverse the implicit point of view that men’s bodies are the normal case and women’s are a variation that needs to be explained. Maybe the question should be why men’s hips are narrow.
“216 out of every 100,000 women die annually”. That’s the number for women giving birth , which is a small subset of “women”. 216/100k is more than annual US deaths from cancer or heart disease – a very big number. It should be used correctly.
I think you misread the statistic. The 216 figure this article refers to is the GLOBAL average of maternal deaths per 100,000 LIVE BIRTHS.
“Globally, an average of 216 women die for every 100,000 live births”
