Women are more nurturing?

They may be. But culture—not biology — may well be the cause.

Might our primate cousins shed some light on this nature-nurture debate?

When it comes to primates, which sex is more nurturing depends on culture, not hormones says University of Toronto anthropologist Frances Burton: hormones are the same throughout the species yet there is no universal pattern to how different tasks are divided, including infant care.

Males may intimately nurture infants. Or they may be hands-off, doing little to no parenting. It depends on the troop.
