Throw out the Stereotypes! Just like a woman! .

Throw out the Stereotypes! Just like a woman! The very phrase is a put-down, echoing the long-entrenched stereotypes of what it means to be female. Gender science is confirming that the female of the species is not the second sex but the separate sex. She is as powerful as the male but with different strengths: intuitiveness, adaptability, durability, sensitivity, sensuality.

book by Dianne R. Hales. Made me proud to be a woman. I read this book because I read an excerpted article from it in Reader's Digest, an article on differences between the male and female brain. I enjoyed the book, with its broader scope, even more than the article. I read the whole thing in a few days. The foundation of Dianne Hales book, as it claims, is science.

Their startling conclusion: Almost every assumption made about women–physical, medical, historical, psychological–turns out to be untested, unproven, or untrue. Stereotypes about women are as old as time–and as current as still-too-prevalent beliefs based on male models.

In recent years researchers in many scientific fields have actively focused on what being female really means.

This is a book for ALL women to read - especially young ones. If I had only known some of the things in it at an earlier age my life would have been much more meaningful. Young women out there need to find out what they are all about.

Great book

This was a required text for a psychology class on evolution and gender - this text helps support why women and men act the way they do subconsciously and also includes a good bit of evolutionary psychology as well.

I read this book because I read an excerpted article from it in Reader's Digest, an article on differences between the male and female brain. I enjoyed the book, with its broader scope, even more than the article. I read the whole thing in a few days. The foundation of Dianne Hales book, as it claims, is science. Extensive notes in the back give the sources for all the research studies she cites. But the book is hardly a cold recitation of facts. She interprets the results through her own experiences as a woman (daughter, wife, mother), and the experiences of people she knows. The book is very personal, very readable, and, in my opinion, entertaining. She covers a wide range of topics that influence a woman's experience. Her premise is that neither men nor women are superior, just different, and we need to understand those differences. Usually, however I get a sense from her pages that she thinks being female is something special. I found myself time and again feeling proud to be a member of this sisterhood of women.

I enjoyed this book, much more than I did Natalie Angier's "Women:An Intimate Geography". It brought up many issues facing the new role science must play in caring for women as our society sheds many notions of what women are "really" like. As science learns more and more about women, she rightly takes the approach that men and women ARE different, and need to be cared for, and understood in different ways. This is neither good or bad, just different, and the way things are. The only problem I have with the book, and it is a small but very nagging one, is that Hales, like many other writters suppose that most research was done on/for men because women were considered less important. While the feeling may have been true throughout the history of humankind, much of the research we have has come from studies done from two very male dominated areas: prisons and the military. If all you have are pretty much all men to do research on, most of your research is going to be male orientated. I do agree though that it is surely time for science to get past that and realize that it needs to make more progress in helping women.
