Internationale Vrouwendag 2020
Each year, Radboud Gender & Diversity Studies organises the celebration of International Women's Day. On Monday March 9, 2020, the theme of the day was Sekse, gender en het brein (Sex, gender and the brain).
Speakers were dr. Annelies Kleinherenbrink who presented in Dutch her lecture Sekse, gender en het brein: mythen en uitdagingen and prof. dr. Rebecca Jordan-Young, who was the keynote speaker in a seminar Testosterone: Gender, Hormones and the Brain. Together with dr. Chris Verhaak (clinical psychologist, specialized in gender differences and the brain) and prof. dr. Marjet Derks (professor in the history of sports), she spoke about the myths around gender and the so-called 'male hormone'. In the evening, Rebecca Jordan-Young spoke with dr. Stefan Dudink at Radboud Reflects about the book of which she is a co-author: Testosterone. An Unauthorized Biography, published in October 2019.
The theme attracted a large audience, both for the Dutch presentation in the morning as for the the English seminar and conversation.
An extensive report (in English) of the day is published in Raffia
Radboud Reflects published a repost of the conversation between Rebecca Jordan-Young and Stefan Dudink in both Dutch and English: Testosterone
