Interview with Cat Bohannon about her book Eve: How the Female Body Drove 200 Million Years of Human Evolution. Discusses evolutionary history, arguing that until recently scientists have effectively ignored women: the majority of subjects in clinical drug trials are male, and too many researchers still mistakenly assume that sex differences are mainly about sex organs, rather than a panoply of biological and physiological features that evolved in the female body over millions of years.
