Editorial Reviews


Vandermassen demonstrates the power and elegance of Darwinian modes of explanation of the range and diversity of sex differences and, in doing so, has opened up a new form of feminist theory. (Grosz, Elizabeth)

Griet Vandermassen's splendidly readable book should inform and inspire not only feminists but anyone who cares about science--its methods, its objectivity, its history, and its place in society. (Helena Cronin)

This very readable book should pave the way for a more informed debate and some degree of reconciliation between feminists and evolutionary biologists. (

Griet Vandermassen provides the most comprehensive treatment to date of the 150-year-long saga of marginalization, mutual suspicion, misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and missed opportunities between biology and feminist thinking. It is my hope that Vandermassen’s remarkable book will remind evolutionary biologists of the contributions that feminists have made and challenge a new generation of feminist scholars to re-engage and integrate evolutionary perspectives into their understanding of the human condition. (Sarah Blaffer Hrdy)

A book that would spark much discussion in evolutionary psychology and women's studies courses. (
