I read article by Emily Martin on sperm and egg but I don't understand can someone please explain to me about this article thanks

  • Anthropology -

    She is talking about the sexist language bias between egg and sperm that give the sperm an active role and the egg a passive one, which — from her data — seems not to be the case.

    Our culture (and many others) has a male bias, negating the women and their roles (misogyny). She is pointing out how this relates to the reproductive processes.
