LRC Today

According to Simone de Beauvoir's famous dictum, "One is not born a woman but rather becomes one." But science – or at least Psychology Today – says otherwise:

"Males and females, it turns out, are different from the moment of conception, and the difference shows itself in every system of body and brain."

Not PC? Perhaps. But ignoring la différence could prove to be a costly mistake:

"Everyone gains from the new imperative to explore sex differences. When we know why depression favors women two to one, or why the symptoms of heart disease literally hit women in the gut, it will change our understanding of how our bodies and our minds work."
