Science, Sex, and Gender: Women's History Month 2020
Human beings have long called on science to define concepts of sex and gender and used them to characterize, classify, and divide. The Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine will host a Women's History Month event on Science, Sex, and Gender. Moderated by Harper Jean Tobin, director of policy at the National Center for Transgender Equality, a panel of experts will explore the role of science in evolving and expanding notions of sex and gender in a discussion that centers the lived experiences of transgender and intersex women.
