Description 

Editorial

'Daddy,' said my six-year-old son on the day I finished interviewing Cordelia Fine, 'Did you know that boys go to college to get more knowledge, and girls go to Jupiter to get more stupider?' I chuckled at the irony (before soundly chastising him), but reflected that it was incidents such as this that prompted Fine to write her excellent book Delusions of Gender. On p.900, Fine takes aim at 'misguided neurological explanations and justifications of sex inequality', including Simon Baron-Cohen's 'essential difference' approach. On p.904, Baron-Cohen reviews the book. It's also something of an occupational psychology special, including an extended debate from some of the UK's top names. It's our first attempt at this, so do let me know how you think it works, and your views on the issue in general.  
Dr Jon Sutton (Managing Editor)
