Are men more rational than women? Females more caring than males? Alleged differences between the sexes can generate heated debate. The latest in the 'Big Picture' series for teachers and post-16 students aims to reveal what we really know about sex differences. 'Big Picture on Sex and Gender' explores the biological basis of sex differences and the relationship between sex and gender. As well as covering the science of sex determination, it looks at attitudes to masculinity and femininity, and asks whether sex is truly a useful way of categorising people.
