Cordelia Fine

Delusions of Gender

unavailable
The brilliant and hugely influential book by the winner of the 2017 royal society insight investment science books prize

Gender inequalities are increasingly defended by citing hard-wired differences between the male and female brain. That’s why, we’re told, there are so few women in science, so few men in the laundry room – different brains are just suited to different things. With sparkling wit and humour, Cordelia Fine attacks this ‘neurosexism’, revealing the mind’s remarkable plasticity, the substantial influence of culture on identity, and the malleability of what we consider to be ‘hardwired’ difference. This modern classic shows the surprising extent to which boys and girls, men and women are made – not born.

“Fun, droll yet deeply serious.” - NEW SCIENTIST

“A brilliant feminist critic of the neurosciences … Read her, enjoy and learn.” - HILARY ROSE, THES
