Delusions of Gender: The Real Science Behind Sex Differences

Cordelia Fine

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.
