She is further recognized for her thorough understanding of women’s life histories, and human behavior and sustainability. One of her most well-known publications, “Why Sex Matters,” offers a Darwinian look at human behavior. Initially published in 2001, the book was recently revised and has continued to receive widespread acclaim.
