April 18, 2013: Gender and Women's Studies Reading Group — Spring discussion of Delusions of Gender
We will be discussing Cordelia Fine's Delusions of Gender: How Our Minds, Society, and Neurosexism Create Difference at our spring meeting on Thursday, April 18th. Join us for book discussion and dinner at Kaos Pizzeria, with dinner beginning at 6:00 pm and discussion beginning around 6:30 pm. Pizza will be provided by the GWST Program. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for a FREE copy of the book. You can pick up your copy from the GWST office (Sturm 419). Copies of the book are reserved for those who will be able to attend the reading group session.
About the book: Brilliantly researched and wickedly funny, Delusions of Gender debunks the pseudo-scientific myth of hardwires differences between men's and women's brains. Unraveling the evidence behind such claims as men's brains aren't made for empathy and women's brains aren't meant to fix cars, Cordelia Fine provides us with a much-needed corrective to the belief that "men are from Mars and women are from Venus"—a belief that all too often works to the detriment of ourselves and our society.
GWST reading group events are open to all faculty, staff, and students (undergrad and grad) who are interested in reading and talking more about gender-related issues. You don't have to be affiliated with the GWST program to participate—this is a way for you to explore issues and get to know other people on campus with similar interests.
