Neurosexism: Brains, Gender and Tech

Cordelia Fine sees myths dressed up as science propagating a dangerous new conventional wisdom about the limitations of girls and women in math and science.

In her book, “Delusions of Gender,” she calls much of popular gender-difference theories “neurosexism.” She notes that “the idea of hardwired sex differences is very confidently presented as ‘fact’ by many popular writers. Unfortunately, claims about [such] differences may be a particularly effective way of reinforcing the gender stereotypes that influence us in self-fulfilling ways.”
