Evolutionary Aspects of Gender and Sexuality.

Joan Roughgarden, Professor Emerita, Biological Sciences and Geophysics, Stanford University.  Evolutionary Aspects of Gender and Sexuality.  Dr. Roughgarden challenged Darwin's theory of sexual selection with a discussion of “social selection" in which gender roles and sexuality are adaptations which facilitate cooperation in complex societies.  This lecture was a joint presentation of the Women in Scientific and Environmental Professions and Adaptive Peaks lecture series and GSA’s Shifting Paradigms annual lecture.
