The difference. What primates can teach us about gender
with Frans de Waal Gert Scobel
How different are men and women? Is it only we humans who “gender”, or do the great apes also adopt gender-specific roles? Based on decades of observations of primates, especially our closest living relatives, the chimpanzees and bonobos, world-renowned and respected primatologist Frans de Waal explores what we know about biological sex differences and the role of culture and socialisation. He examines such topics as gender identity, sexuality, gender-specific violence, homosexuality, friendship and caring, and dispels gender-specific biases. And in the process, he challenges us to reassess our norms and behaviours. "Not only one of the most respected primatologists in the world – he is also a courageous feminist" (Sy Montgomery). Mod.: Gert Scobel
