Description

Salon 33: The "Science" of Sex Differences

Dr. Elizabeth Morton (Genome Sciences)

Last year's infamous "Google Memo" brought new attention to an age-old controversy on gender differences and their implications in cognitive abilities and job suitability.  Why does belief that men and women are "good" at different mental tasks exist in society?  What scientific evidence exists addressing this?  During this salon, we will discuss the validity and implications of research into the biology of sex differences.  Can this research be handled appropriately in the inescapable context of a biased society?
