31) In a family where the roles of men and women are not sharply seperated and where many household tasks are shared to a greater or lesser extent,notions of male superiority are hard to maintain.
32) In such a home,the growing boy and girl learn to accept that equality more easily than their parents did and to prepare more fully participation in a world characterized by cooperation rather than by the "battle of the sexes".
33) There are signs that pshchologists and specialists on the family are becoming more aware of the part men play and that they have decided that women should nor receive all the credit,nor all the blame.We have almost given up saying that a woman’s place is in the home.
34) We are beginning,however,to study a man’s place in the home and to resist that he does have a place in it.Nor is that place irrelevant to the healthy development of the child.
35) The family is a cooperative enterprise for which it is difficult to lay down rules,because each family memberneeds to work out its own ways for solving its own problems.
36) Scientists at Johns Hopkins have discovered :striking" differents between men and women in a part of the brain linked with ability to estimate time,judge speed,visualize things three-dimensionally and solve mathematical problems.
37) The differences,the researchers say,may underlie well-known trends that vary by sex,such as the fact that more men than women are architects,mathematicians and race-car drivers.
38) In women in the study,it is the right IPL that is somewhat larger,though the difference between the two sides of the brains is less obvious than in men,say Psychiatrist Godfrey Pearlson,M.D. ,who headed the project.
39) It allows the brain to process information from senses such as vision and touch,and enable the sort of thinking involved in selective attention and perception.
40)There are plenty of exceptions,but there is also a grain of truth,revealed throught the brain structure,that we think underlies some of the ways people characterize the sexes.
