Delusions of gender : how our minds, society, and neurosexism create difference by Cordelia Fine( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Turkish and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, Cordelia Fine debunks the myth of hardwired differences between men's and women's brains, unraveling the evidence behind such claims as men's brains aren't wired for empathy and women's brains aren't made to fix cars. She then goes one step further, offering a very different explanation of the dissimilarities between men's and women's behavior. Instead of a "male brain" and a "female brain," Fine gives us a glimpse of plastic, mutable minds that are continuously influenced by cultural assumptions about gender.--From publisher description

Delusions of gender : the real science behind sex differences by Cordelia Fine( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a vehement attack on the latest pseudo-scientific claims about the differences between the sexes - with the scientific evidence to back it up. Sex discrimination is supposedly a distant memory. Yet popular books, magazines and even scientific articles increasingly defend inequalities by citing immutable biological differences between the male and female brain. Why are there so few women in science and engineering, so few men in the laundry room? Well, they say, it's our brains. Drawing on the latest research in developmental psychology, neuroscience, and social psychology, Delusions of Gender rebuts these claims, showing how old myths, dressed up in new scientific finery, help perpetuate the status quo. Cordelia Fine reveals the mind's remarkable plasticity, shows the substantial influence of culture on identity, and, ultimately, exposes just how much of what we consider 'hardwired' is actually malleable" --Publisher's description

Testosterone Rex : Unmaking the Myths of Our Gendered Minds by Cordelia Fine( Book )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Testosterone Rex is the powerful myth that squashes hopes of sex equality by telling us that men and women have evolved different natures. Fixed in an ancestral past that rewarded competitive men and caring women, these differences are supposedly re-created in each generation by sex hormones and male and female brains. Testosterone, so we're told, is the very essence of masculinity, and biological sex is a fundamental force in our development. Not so, says psychologist Cordelia Fine, who shows, with wit and panache, that sex doesn't create male and female natures. Instead, sex, hormones, culture and evolution work together in ways that make past and present gender dynamics only a serving suggestion for the future - not a recipe. Testosterone Rex brings together evolutionary science, psychology, neuroscience and social history to move beyond old 'nature versus nurture' debates, and to explain why it's time to unmake the tyrannical myth of Testosterone Rex

Mothermorphosis : Australia's best storytellers write about becoming a mother( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mothermorphosis, some of Australia's most talented writers and storytellers share their own experiences of motherhood. In telling their stories they articulate the complex internal conflicts, the exhilaration and the absurdity of the transformation that takes place when we become mothers. We read about the yearning for a child, the private and public expressions of maternal love, the questioning, uncertainty and unexpected delight, as well as unfathomable loss. Mothermorphosis reveals that there is no 'right' version of this epic experience and no single tale that could ever speak for all mothers. Yet it is in reading about other women's experiences the hard bits, the joyous bits and even the ridiculous bits that we can become more compassionate, not just to other mothers but hopefully to ourselves. Mothermorphosis includes writing from: Kate Holden, Kathy Lette, Lorelei Vashti, Rebecca Huntley, George McEnroe, Fatima Measham, Jo Case, Hilary Harper, Cordelia Fine, Jane Caro, Hannah Robert, Susan Carland, Kerri Sackville, Catherine Deveny, Lee Kofman and Dee Madigan." -- Publisher's website
Die Geschlechterlüge : die Macht der Vorurteile über Frau und Mann by Cordelia Fine( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frauen können nicht einparken und Männer nicht zuhören. Diese Überzeugung gehört wie viele weitere zu unserem Alltag. Die Neurowissenschaftlerin Cordelia Fine räumt unterhaltsam und scharfsinnig mit diesem Mythos auf. Vergessen Sie alles, was sie je über männliche und weibliche Gehirne gehört haben. Viele bekannte populärwissenschaftliche Bestseller behaupten auf der Basis neurowissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen: Männer und Frauen haben unterschiedliche Gehirne und daher unterschiedliche Begabungen. Vermeintliche natürliche Unterschiede werden aufgebaut und dienen als Erklärung für gesellschaftliche Rollenstereotype. Cordelia Fine entlarvt, wie unter dem Deckmantel der Wissenschaft schlampige Untersuchungen, oberflächlich gedeutete Forschung und vage Beweise zu angeblichen Tatsachen gemacht wurden. Sie zeigt, wie unser Leben als Mann und Frau stark von geschlechtertypischen Erwartungen und Vorurteilen beeinflusst wird, selbst wenn wir sie nicht gut heißen. Und welch subtile Macht Stereotype ausüben können. Das Einzige, was wissenschaftlich bewiesen ist: Es gibt eine neuronale Plastizität. Unser Gehirn entwickelt sich vor allem durch psychologische Einflüsse, Erfahrungen und Tätigkeiten. Und für Männer und Frauen gilt: Alles ist möglich!
