Actually, both males and females have Adam's apples (which is just the thyroid cartilage). The only difference is that men's thyroid cartilages are more pronounced so they can be easily seen, but to find it on a woman you would have to feel for it.

Adam's AppleMen have an Adam's apple because their larynx (also called the "voice-box"), which contains the vocal cords is larger in men than in women. It is actually the thyroid cartilage, which makes up a part of the larynx, that protrudes from the front of the neck forming the familiar "Adam's apple.'
