By Katie Hunt, CNN (CNN) — Several studies have already debunked the myth that boys are innately better at math than girls, but those are largely based on analysis of test scores. Now, researchers also have brain imaging that proves young children use the same mechanisms and networks in the brain to solve math problems no matter their gender. The study was published Friday in the journal Science of Learning. “We’d studied the behavior of young girls and boys on mathematics tests, and we’d observed that their performance was statistically equivalent; they were indistinguishable. They’d developed the same abilities at the same rates in early childhood,” says Jessica Cantlon, a professor of developmental neuroscience at Carnegie Mellon University and the study’s senior author. “But there was this lingering question of what’s going on under the hood? Is it the same neural mechanism that allows them to accomplish this … [Read more...] about Brain Scans Show Girls And Boys Equal At Math
New York (CNN Business)Some Apple Card customers say the credit card's issuer, Goldman Sachs, is giving women far lower credit limits, even if they share assets and accounts with their spouse. But it's impossible to know if the Apple Card -- or any other credit card -- discriminates against women, because creditworthiness algorithms are notoriously opaque. "It's such a mystery we are seeing," said Sara Rathner, travel and credit cards expert at NerdWallet. "Because we don't know exactly what those algorithms are looking for, it can be hard to say if there might be some bias built into them." The New York Department of Financial Services is looking into the allegations of gender discrimination against users of the Apple Card. The allegations blew up on Twitter Saturday after tech entrepreneur David Heinmeier Hansson wrote that Apple Card offered him 20 times the credit limit as his wife, although they have shared assets and she has a higher credit score. Many other users voiced … [Read more...] about Apple card is accused of gender bias. Here’s how that can happen
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — With the new year, New York City residents now have a new option for denoting gender on their birth certificates. The law allows the choice of “X.” Mayor Bill de Blasio supported the plan, which allows people, including transgender residents, to change their birth certificates to “X” by attesting that it reflects their true gender identity. Parents also can choose “X” for newborns.

In an age of supposed gender-neutral hiring, the job market is still sharply divided between “male” and “female” occupations. Perhaps it is a mistake to promote equality of numbers when what really matters is equality of opportunity. Many gender differences in employment conform to age-old divisions of labor when women were seen as child-rearers and men were selected for hunting. Not all occupations differ greatly by gender, yet those that do show striking evolutionary patterns that relate to male specialization for hunting and female specialization for child care. Many of the gender differences in psychology and behavior in earlier societies are likely a product of gender differences in work specialization. Despite several decades of enforcing equal opportunity laws, many stark occupational differences remain. These differences may be illustrated by divergences in the representation of American men and women in various occupations, for which detailed … [Read more...] about Gender Segregation at Work
