What's New in Science - What are actual gender differences?

What's New in Science Christia Brown

Part 2 of 4: This segment includes a discussion of actual gender differences. We examine 3 of the most common gender difference myths. This is followed by discussion of where true gender differences exist (in terms of biology, behavior, and psychology) and how these differences may vary based on context and experience.

What's New in Science - Why does inaccurate focus on gender differences matter? Begin Q&A

Several topics of the presentation are expanded upon through questions.

What's New in Science - Introduction to Gender and the Brain

What's New in Science Christia Brown

Part 1 of 4: This segment includes a description of why it is difficult to examine gender differences in people and what the implications are for getting it wrong. It also provides a primer for what people should know when evaluating research on gender.
