Genetics isn't gender impartial in its effect. Mahowald cites quite a lot of organic and psychosocial examples that show its diversified effect on women and men, specifically with reference to copy and caregiving. She examines the level to which those ameliorations are linked to gender injustice, arguing for positions that lessen inequality among the sexes. The serious point of view Mahowald brings to this research is an egalitarian interpretation of feminism that calls for recognition to inequalities coming up from racism, ethnocentricism, albleism, and classism in addition to sexism. Eschewing a suggestion of equality as sameness, Mahowald defines equality as attribution of an identical price to assorted items.
