Publisher's Summary

From intelligence to emotion, for centuries science has told us that men and women are fundamentally different. But this is not the whole story.
Shedding light on controversial research and investigating the ferocious gender wars in biology, psychology and anthropology, Angela Saini takes listeners on an eye-opening journey to uncover how women are being rediscovered. She explores what these revelations mean for us as individuals and as a society, revealing an alternative view of science in which women are included rather than excluded.

Critic Reviews

"Angela Saini has written a powerful, compelling and much needed account that challenges deeply rooted preconceptions about sex differences - some blatant misogyny, others buried in thousands of years patriarchy. Inferior shows that both are fundamentally flawed, and beautifully illustrates how science is just beginning to tackle this staggering imbalance." (Adam Rutherford, author of Creation)
"An immensely readable and compelling book, providing up to date and evidence-based ammunition for readers who want to rebuff tired myths stereotyping men and women's brains and bodies." ( Professor Athene Donald)
"This is an important book, beautifully written, and with compelling narratives and hard evidence researched through the lenses of anthropology, evolutionary history, psychology, and neuroscience. The evidence for unconscious bias is undisputed - so no matter what you think you think about gender and equality - read this book." (Aarathi Prasad, author of Like a Virgin)

Very good

Very good. The only problem with this is that with every chapter there is a quote from other sources and with this version it is hard to see the the separation from the start of the chapter. The narrator was very easy to listen to.

Fantastic breakdown of all you need to know about women's supposed inferiority

Google employees think that women are inferior? They missed the science. Read this book and give it to your friends to read for an easy to understand history of how scientists have misrepresented women's biology and the impact of society on women.
