comment Who were the Wright brothers' competitors?
Langley and the Smithsonian claimed for some time that he had achieved flight before the Wright brothers... that makes it improbable that he was the individual who succumbed to depression.

comment Did Peter the Great promote rights for women? If so, how?
By the standard you propose, women's rights in Pakistan exceed those in the USA; I think that is a counterfactual position. You are correct in facts, but I don't think that an Empress changes the position of women in society.

comment Why did Peter the Great crown Catherine I as empress?
Sources would improve this answer. I really like the answer; it adds to my understanding and knowledge, but it would benefit from a source.

comment Why couldn't Germans and Finns capture Leningrad?
Have you done any preliminary research? This question risks being closed as opinion based (although the current VtC are for "Off Topic". Ultimately every battle is about whether either side can force the other to capitulate; in the case of Leningrad, the Wehrmacht could not impose their wills on the citizens of Leningrad.

comment Has there been any culture where men typically have longer hair than women?
I feel like this question is kind of like proving a negative. We'll just wait and see if anyone can find an example, and if nobody can, we accept that there is no such example.
