How Girls Evolved to Shop, and Other Ways to Insult Women with “Science”
Noted US SGU blogger and Skepchicks founder Rebecca Watson asks whether cavemen really preferred blondes — how many of those pop-sci headlines can you believe?
Watson is in New Zealand from December 4 to 8 for a series of entertaining and educational presentations hosted by the NZ Skeptics and Skeptics in the Pub.
Watson founded Skepchick in 2005, describing it as “an organization dedicated to promoting skepticism and critical thinking among women around the world”. Since 2006, she has been a regular contibuter to the popular Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast. She has an asteroid named after her.
