Contrary to popular belief, it has never been proved that women actually do blink twice as much as men. Women and men do not differ in their rates of spontaneous blinking. Generally, between each blink in intervals of 2-10 seconds; actual rates vary by individual averaging around 10 blinks per minute in a laboratory setting. However, when the eyes are focused on an object for an extended period of time, such as when reading, the rate of blinking decreases to about 3-4 times per minute.

It impossible to tell because how often you blink depends on age, stress, and other factors NOT GENDER according to recent studies.

There was "no difference being detected between men and women" when it came to frequency of eye blinks.

Women do not blink twice as much as men. It's been determined that it is a myth. Both men and women blink every 2-10 seconds. Women who use oral contraceptives blink more often, but it is not known why.

Yes, they do. And I have no idea, for I saw that fact on Crazy Facts About Earth and I found it on three websites, but none of them explained why.
