Center of moment (Cm) is approximately the intersection of the two stress lines across the diagonals of the torso from the end of one's left shoulder to the end of one's right hip and vice versa.
For both males and females, Cm lies roughly between the hips, but because females thighs are generally more massive than male thighs, the center of gravity is slightly higher for males. [http://people.psych.cornell.edu/~jec7/pubs/biomechanical.pdf Source]
