“Brain Study Confirms Gender Stereotypes”: How science communication can fuel modern sexism.

By Cliodhna O’Connor

Source: LSE Blog

Abstract: "The way much research on sexual differentiation is conducted and communicated has come under intense criticism from scholars in both the natural and social sciences. Cliodhna O’Connor describes how traditional gender stereotypes are projected onto scientific information and its subsequent reporting. But the dynamics of online spaces have also facilitated more nuanced debate about the social implications of research, and its potential to perpetuate inequalities."
