Neuroscientist and sexologist Debra Soh challenges popular gender myths in The End of Gender. Through research-based analysis and original research, she tackles the nature vs. nurture debate, debunking misconceptions about gender, gender-neutral parenting, and gender dysphoria. Soh challenges the accepted idea that gender is a social construct and a spectrum, arguing that there are differences between male and female brains. The End of Gender is a timely and provocative work that will challenge readers' understanding of gender identity and its place in society.
