A generation of equal opportunities has failed to iron out the great sex divide in the workplace. This film examines primarily through research on the brain, how biology plays a role in men's drive to succeed more than it does for women, and why this may explain the lack of women in the boardroom. Also looks at the contrasting behaviors of female and male athletes and the difference of "risk taking" behavior between the sexes.

Why men don't iron. 3, The emotional difference.
Brooklyn , NY : First Run/Icarus Films, c1998
(52 min.)
The era of equal opportunities raised expectations that men and women's roles would become interchangeable. Yet, research reveals that most men are neurologically primed to find household routine more difficult, and that women are hormonally primed for maternal behavior, finding such tasks less stressful than men do. This film explores the neurological elements that help to perpetuate persistent divisions of labor, and investigates the biological basis of our seemingly unchangeable emotional systems.
