Summary:
Social psychologist Tavris discusses the widespread but invisible custom - pervasive in the social sciences, medicine, law, and history - of treating men as the normal standard, women as abnormal. Tavris expands our vision of normalcy by illuminating the similarities between women and men, showing that the real differences lie not in gender, but in power, resources, and life experiences.
