Meeting Details
Speaker: Professor Gina Rippon
Biography: University of Aston
Date: Tuesday 6th October 2020

Venue: This will be a virtual meeting via Zoom
Description: This talk will review the argument that women and men are born with different brains and that this is what causes sex differences in behaviour, personalities and temperaments, skills and achievements. But what goes on outside our heads is as important as what goes on inside and may offer better explanations for the persistence of gender gaps in today’s world. A gendered world can produce a gendered brain.
