Synopsis

'Inferior is more than just a book. It's a battle cry - and right now, it's having a galvanising effect on its core fanbase' Observer





Are women more nurturing than men?





Are men more promiscuous than women?





Are males the naturally dominant sex?





And can science give us an impartial answer to these questions?







Taking us on an eye-opening journey through science, Inferior challenges our preconceptions about men and women, investigating the ferocious gender wars that burn in biology, psychology and anthropology. Angela Saini revisits the landmark experiments that have informed our understanding, lays bare the problem of bias in research, and speaks to the scientists finally exploring the truth about the female sex.





The result is an enlightening and deeply empowering account of women's minds, bodies and evolutionary history. Interrogating what these revelations mean for us as individuals and as a society, Inferior unveils a fresh view of science in which women are included, rather than excluded.

Staff Choice

If you’re looking for a smart, blistering read, there’s little more glorious than watching Angela Saini deconstruct, study by study, the science that has for so long insisted that women are innately and immutably inferior to men. Exposing the flaws and inconsistencies in some of the most widely-cited studies on gender difference, this is a powerful and deeply vindicating book.
