You may think science is perfectly objective, but in the study of people, it’s all too easy for bias and prejudice to creep in. For centuries, many scientists have told us that women are biologically inferior to men, that they are intellectually less capable, sexually more chaste, and naturally designed to be homemakers and caregivers. Science journalist Angela Saini, author of the critically-acclaimed book, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story, has investigated the science behind the stereotypes and asks whether we need a radical overhaul of the way we think about women.
