Book Description

‘Fun, droll yet deeply serious.’New Scientist
‘A brilliant feminist critic of theneurosciences … Read her, enjoy and learn.’Hilary Rose, THES
‘A witty and meticulously researchedexposé of the sloppy studies that pass for scientificevidence in so many of today’s bestselling bookson sex differences.’Carol Tavris, TLS


Gender inequalities are increasingly defended by citing hard-wired differences between the male andfemale brain. That’s why, we’re told, there are so fewwomen in science, so few men in the laundry room –different brains are just suited to different things.

With sparkling wit and humour, Cordelia Fine attacksthis ‘neurosexism’, revealing the mind’s remarkableplasticity, the substantial influence of culture on identity,and the malleability of what we consider to be‘hardwired’ difference.

This modern classic showsthe surprising extent to which boys and girls, men andwomen are made – not born.
