Editors Note In his article, Dr Lifton distinguishes between sex as biology and physiology, and gender as psychology and sociology Although we are in full agreement with the need to distinguish these two terms, his use of gender is narrower than the more structural analysis of power relations between women and men implied by some other authors when using this term in this issue Readers should note these distinctions
