During the 1960s, Margaret Mead's argument that gender identity is a product of learning in particular cultural contexts was incorporated into the "sex/gender system" in feminist theory. In this system, sex refers to physiological differences in the body and gender refers to learned sex-specific bodies to be viewed as separate and distinct from gender-neutral minds. In S/He Brain, Nadeau demonstrates that the sex/gender systemis not some arcane bit of academic jargon that has no impact on our daily lives.
