Biology and Gender: False Theories About Women and Blacks, No. 1, 1977
A scientist, Dorothy Burnham was a student activist in Brooklyn and in 1940 joined the staff of the Southern Negro Youth Congress.
Recently there has appeared in the popular press and in the scientific journals a number of books and articles which set out to demonstrate that the gender of women is defined by human biology. Some of the most exciting research in modern biology has been that which was concerned with the molecules which determine heredity. And it is no wonder that James Watson was lyrical in his account of the joint effort which resulted in the publication of the structure of DNA. When persuading his sister to type the manuscript, he told her that she was participating in perhaps the most famous event in biology since Darwin's books.1____________________
