But is that really true or relevant today? Christopher Ryan: Are we designed to be sexual omnivores? Ryan explains that our sexual patterns are an outgrowth of agricultural models—which accounts for only about five percent of human history. Below, read up on some more lines of research that suggest out-of-the-box ideas about our sexuality. Pingback: 6 studies that offer fascinating conclusions about human sexuality B0Y.
Gender Studies: Foundations and Key Concepts
Gender Inequality and Women in the Workplace - Harvard Summer School

The current COVID pandemic presents a unique opportunity to examine the potential value of asking questions about sex and gender differences to inform ongoing policy decisions. Even 30 years after the founding of the National Institutes of Health Office of Women's Health Research, which is dedicated to remedying the lack of clinical information by sex and gender, funding still lags dramatically for study of the extent and nature of differences between men and women. Much of current medical evidence is based largely on men.
Why do so few men take gender studies courses?
Gender studies allows people in different social environments to solve gender-related conflicts by providing a common understanding regarding gender identity and relationships. It studies how men and women are the same and ways in which they differ. Gender studies enables an understanding of each gender's needs and the unique contributions each gender makes to society. Much gender-related abuse, discrimination and maltreatment has occurred throughout the course of history due to a lack of knowledge.
The gender pay gap dominated the headlines last week, with results from the reporting exercise showing that almost eight in ten organisations, across the public and private sector, are paying men more than women. Just over 10K companies reported their pay gap by the April 4 deadline, with the data revealing that women are being paid a median hourly rate which is on average 9. A report from the Institute for Fiscal Studies had already highlighted pay disparity of 18 per cent in the UK — a gap it is predicted will take 60 years to close. The requirement to publicly state figures has, however, put the spotlight on the much wider issue of gender equality in the workplace. Because of course the pay gap is not just about remuneration.
