Part 1: Sex difference denial is a danger to society
Despite the professional and personal consequences, Dr Carole Hooven, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a former associate at the Harvard Department of Psychology and author of “Testosterone: the Hormone that Dominates and Divides Us”, has fearlessly spoken out on some of the most incendiary issues around sex, biology and behaviour.
In the second part of our exclusive interview (part 1 is here), we spoke with Dr Hooven to discuss the intricate relationship between our genes, hormones, environment, culture and behaviour, and how she believes the latest research paints a clear and compelling picture of the profound influence testosterone has our brains, bodies and behaviour.
Dr Hooven also warns of the dangers to society if we deny that fundamental differences exist between men and women, and then explains why using clear language to explain sex and gender is essential to a fully-functioning democracy.
