Become aware of stereotyping to support gender equality

In a very recent talk Prof. Rippon demonstrates that brains reflect the lives they have lived, not just the sex of their owners. There is no blueprint to tell a male from a female brain. The differences among individual male brains are greater than the differences between male and female brains. Dr Rippon strongly argues against the misinterpretation of neuro-imaging and neuroscience to confirm the stereotypes we have about men and women. Stereotypes and expectations we place on boys and girls are great causes of gender differences observed.

A gendered world, produces a gendered brain, and biology and society are greatly entangled.
