Whether looking at intelligence or emotion, cognition or behavior, science has continued to tell us that men and women are fundamentally different. Biologists claim that women are better suited to raising families or are more empathetic. Men continue to be described as excelling at tasks that require logic, spatial reasoning, and motor skills. But a huge wave of research is now revealing an alternative version of what we thought we knew. The new woman revealed by this scientific data is as strong, strategic, and smart as anyone else. As Saini reveals research is finally rediscovering women's bodies and minds. This book investigates the gender wars in biology, psychology, and anthropology, and delves into scientific studies to uncover a fascinating new portrait of women's brains, bodies, and role in human evolution.
