FirstSexIn her book, “The First Sex: The Natural Talents of Women and How They Are Changing the World,” social anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher explains: “Tomorrow belongs to women.” Looking back to prehistoric times, Fisher shows how the structure of the female brain enables women to do “web thinking” or “synthesis thinking,” compared to men’s more linear or “step” thinking.
