Why do women try to be pretty?
In other species, males are the ones that try to attract mates, flaunting their colors, tails, feathers, etc. I do not recall females trying to attract mates through similar mechanisms (other than signaling readiness to mate.) Why do human females try to attract mates by enhancing their looks (e.g. plastic surgery, makeup, etc.), while males "slack" in this regard (sure, some guys work out to build muscle and such, but you see more women in the cosmetic departments and such.)? Is this a product of society, human intelligence (doubtful), or what?

Are there species in which females do a lot of the flaunting?

Or am I missing something fundamentally obvious here (for example, my initial statements were false)?
