What misconceptions do we still have about women's minds and bodies?

For hundreds of years, Western science took women's intellectual and physical inferiority as a given. But as we move beyond these pseudoscientific ideas, what mistakes are scientists and doctors still making when they think about sex and gender? Are we sometimes even at risk of  creating new myths? British science journalist and author, Angela Saini, joins  leading cancer researcher and founder of the STEMMinist Book club, Caroline Ford for a conversation about bias in science, medicine and the public understanding of gender, and how to build a more accurate picture of human difference.
