Recommendation: Myths of Gender

A reader recommends…

Myths of Gender

This book sort of rips the idea of masculinity and femininity a new one by picking apart their scientific basis: the idea of a biologically masculine or feminine brain (not in the sense of a brain of someone who naturally identifies as male or female, but a brain with “male” or “female” skills or perceptions). It’s a little dated by this point but it’s still a great antidote to a lot of the books out there on “brain sex.”
