Male and female: making sense of the differences

How to understand brainsex differences in behaviour.

Our brains are sexed just as surely as our bodies and the differences between the male and female brain are much greater than we used to think. We cannot afford to continue ignoring how the sex of the brain influences all behaviour, including how we learn, relate to and care for others, and maintain mental health. Indeed, ignorance of the biologically influenced sex differences is damaging society. In education, for example, we harm both sexes with the gender-neutral curriculum, but especially the boys - they get the lowest grades, are diagnosed with the most behavioural disorders, make up 80% of school drop outs and perpetrate 94% of juvenile crime. Understanding brainsex differences is also vital to improving male/female relationships - the common cause of much emotional suffering. Anne Moir's course contains essential knowledge for us all.
