The following article by Janet Shibley Hyde, PhD, Rebecca S. Bigler, PhD, Daphna Joel, PhD, Charlotte Chucky Tate, PhD, and Sari M. van Anders, PhD has been awarded the 2019 George A. Miller Award for an Outstanding Recent Article on General Psychology from Division 1, Society for General Psychology.

Hyde, J. S., Bigler, R., Joel, D., Tate, C. C., & van Anders, S. (2019). The future of sex and gender in psychology: Five challenges to the gender binary. American Psychologist, 74, 171-193.

From the award citation:

“This article, published in the journal American Psychologist, elegantly challenges views on human sexual and psychological dimorphism and beliefs in the gender binary by systematically reviewing evidence from the fields of neuroscience, behavioral neuroendocrinology, the psychology of sex/gender differences and similarities, the psychology of transgender and non-binary individuals, and developmental psychology. The authors argue for a new conceptualization of gender/sex that views gender and sex as intertwined, dynamic, interactive, and multidimensional. The reviewers felt that this article exemplifies what can be accomplished when the findings from many different areas of psychology are brought to bear on our understanding of constructs that are central to our field, our daily lives, and our society.”

Congratulations, Professor Hyde!
