Unmaking the myths of our gendered minds

July 25, 5:00 pm - August 9, 5:00 pm, All branches,
The Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia presents:

Professor Cordelia Fine Speaking Tour

Prof Cordelia Fine uses the latest research in evolutionary science, psychology and neuroscience to challenge our thinking that biological sex predetermines our gender characteristics.

In Prof Fine’s brilliant new book Testosterone Rex: Unmaking the myths of our gendered minds, she delves into the science around biological sex in brain development, investigating scientific claims that reinforce gender stereotypes and roles in ways that are not scientifically justified and are potentially harmful to both sexes, arguably, especially to girls and women.

This presentation – drawing on the latest scientific research in an accessible way – will show how science has been unmaking the myth of Testosterone Rex, and how sex, hormones, culture and evolution work together in ways that make past and present gender dynamics only a serving suggestion for the future – and not a recipe.
