Our goal is to bring evidence-based science stories and angles on science specifically of interest to the female-gendered audience. That audience might be XY or XXY or XYY or XO or XX and that gender might vary from day to day, but all are welcome here. Biology doesn't offer a shorthand for "female gender," but if you're feeling XX-y with or without a double X, we've got science for you.
