These blessings remain only in Orthodox prayerbooks, (at least in the negative “who has not made” formulations) all other denominations having gotten rid of them for various reasons.
I have heard numerous well-intentioned men (and a some women like Mrs. Leah Kohn and Kressel’s Korner ) explain that the blessing for not having been made a women is not a negative reflection on women, which the simple or pshat reading would tell, you but in fact is gratitude for the additional mitzvot/ obligations that a man has, but which a woman is excepted from due to her duties to her husband and childrens….
