Researchers At Saint Andrews University Study Gender Bias In Monkeys
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Researchers say they found gender bias in monkeys. St. Andrews University studied how monkeys learn from each other and found female monkeys less likely to learn from males. The females have closer social bonds. And if one finds a better way to get food, others pay attention. Male monkeys move around more, form weaker social bonds. And even if the males do stumble on useful information, females don't trust them. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
