A panel last week was interrupted by the reconvening of Congress; taped, it may appear later. Contrasting research & experience, the general with the particular, it draws some useful lines. These two were not used to reach a higher understanding, at least in the section broadcast. Rather, a stark contrast emerged from two different approaches to analyzing behavior as well as dealing with the quite commonsensical notion that sexual differences are biological as well as societal. My opinion: the wavering voices reflect the ivory tower, where dissension (and common sense) are left at the other side of the moat. Titled “Gender Differences: How Significant Are They?”: the panel consisted of Steven Rhoads, author of Taking Sex Differences Seriously and Andrea Buchanan, author of Mother Shock. The moderator was Claire Caplan of the UVA Women’s Center.
