Publisher's Summary

In this issue:

"Promiscuous Men, Chaste Women and Other Gender Myths": The notion that behavioral differences between the sexes are innate and immutable does not hold up under scrutiny.

"Is there a 'Female' Brain?": The debate over whether men and women have meaningfully different brains could have profound implications for health and personal identity.

"When Sex and Gender Collide": Studies of transgender kids are revealing fascinating insights about gender in the brain. Many trans children show surprisingly firm identities at young age, for instance, and important differences divide trans girls from boys who like pink.

"Not Just for Men": Researchers and doctors must dig deeper into gender differences before they can provide women with better treatments.
