Oque eu quero saber qual é a tradução correta desse texto? are girls smarter than boys?

in modern times, no one refers to women as the weaker sex. they’re stronger, healthier, more powerful and more successful than ever before. but are they more intelligent than men? what are the differences in brain size between boys and girls? for people who love comparisons, there is some interesting scientific news recently published in the journal of neuroscience.
it’s true that head size correlates statistically with intelligent, and men’s heads, like their bodies, are bigger than women’s. women’s brains are, on average, slightly smaller than men’s but this reflects their smaller body size. recent studies suggest that women have the same number of brain cells, just crammed into a smaller space.
psychology tests show that women are as intelligent as men, they score equally on intelligent tests. but there is a difference. women have a higher proportion of gray matter, the brain cells responsible for computation. on the other hand, men have a greater amount of white matter, which manages communications among cells.
the gray/white variation also helps to explain why men and women tend to excel at different cognitive tasks. women are usually more skillful verbally, they are better at verbal and language abilities, while men are usually better at tasks that involve spatial skills, like mathematics and physics.

How to fight against prejudiceprejudice can be found at any time and in any society. people have prejudice about another race, religion,nation and even about people who look different from them. it is known that prejudice appears when there isa lack of knowledge. that's because not enough knowledge leads to a generalization, which is the root ofevery prejudice. once people establish their general judgment about one particular group of people, they tendto keep their beliefs alive by ignoring facts that might spoil their judgment. they don't want to learn, becauselearning is generally hard and, what is more dangerous, it might also destroy their beliefs. people withprejudice never compare one individual to another, but one whole group to another group. but, what if thereis nothing to compare? imagine yourself in a foreign country, far enough to present big cultural differences between you andinhabitants of that country. what would happen with any prejudice you might have? could it still exist? ifthere is nothing to compare your prejudice will simply disappear because it will become invalid.next time, when you find yourself in a situation in which you have to fight against prejudice, try to imaginepeople of that group isolated from the others. that way you can successfully fight against any prejudice.a) is prejudice a recent issue? b) what kinds of prejudice are mentioned in the text? what other kinds ofprejudice do you know about? c) according to the text, what is the root of every prejudice? do you agree with it? d) should we generalize and stereotype people? why (not)? e) what advice is given in the last paragraph? do you think it's good advice? projectthis activity's contentcould be useful forproject 1, on page 81you may start takingnotes and developingyour ideas about it​
