November Forum Looks at Sex and Gender

Our November forum featured Alice Eagly, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, Northwestern University who discussed "The Social Behavior of Women and Men: Nature and Nurture Working Together".  Dr. Eagly is a social psychologist who has published widely on the psychology of gender and of attitudes, especially attitude change and attitude structure.  As the NIH develops new sex inclusion research  guidelines, the intersection of sex and gender will become an important element of the national discourse.
