But the new opportunities were hard-won and many prejudices were lurking, just waiting for an invitation to resurface. It was not a politically opportune time to promote research on the very differences that so many dedicated individuals (both female and male) were striving to overcome. Chapter 2: A historical perspective 35 Since the early 1980s, one particular researcher has pursued the question of sex differences and behavior. Over the past 25 years, Doreen Kimura has published on a number of areas where she has observed female to male differences including language (Kimura and Harshman 1984), performance on spatial tasks (Hampson and Kimura 1988), and the effects of hormone replacement therapy in protecting cognitive function after menopause (Kimura 1995).

Only in times of great wealth and excess can a society afford the luxury of the pursuit of knowledge just for the pleasure of knowing. The kinds of areas developed will depend in part upon the education and skills of the people doing the research and the personal interests and biases of those individuals. It follows that the present lack of knowledge of the female brain must stem from a number of circumstances where decisions were made that did not favor such interests. Since, until very recently, study of this type was almost exclusively the domain of physicians, the role of females in medical science will be an important aspect of the discussion.
