Why Gender Matters: What Parents and Teachers Need to Know About the Emerging Science of Sex Differences

by Leonard Sax, M.D., Ph.D Author

Since its first publication, Why Gender Matters combines rather than chooses sides in the argument of nature versus nurture. Dr. Sax delineates through engaging stories the science behind how girls and boys process and learn. However, the world continues to change, and this second edition presents new research on how interaction differs with social media and video games as well as offers guidance in supporting gender-nonconforming and LGBTI young people. Dr. Sax addresses these topics to dismantle damaging stereotypes in order to create an environment where we can raise "happier, healthier" children.
