'For much of history women were treated as men’s intellectual inferiors. “Inferior” by Angela Saini , a British journalist is an illuminating account of how science has stoked the views that innate preferences and abilities differ between men and women. A striking pattern emerges: almost all of the prominent scientists behind these studies are men, whereas much of the growing, more recent research that disputes them is done by women.When differences are found, they are not always in favor of the same sex and may shift over time; reams of research have shown that differences between the sexes in cognitive abilities or motor skills are very small or non-existent.Yet scientists keep searching for sex differences in the brain, these days with imaging machines that measure brain activity. This line of research relies on human eyes looking for patterns, and also on imperfect technology.'
