“The Truth about Cinderella” Summary In their article “The Truth about Cinderella,” former presidents of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, Martin Daly and Margo Wilson, conduct research on the likelihood of a child being abused by a stepparent versus being abused by a biological parent. In their article, they explain the steps leading up to their research, their methods in conducting their research, and the eventual outcomes and conclusions they reach. They use various means of conducting their study, trying to make the outcomes as unbiased as possible. In the first couple paragraphs, the authors explain to the reader the approaches they use to obtain their results and the outcomes in the United States. The data they use firsthand was obtained from the American Human Association, which, for each victimized child, included demographic facts about the victim and perpetrator, details of the abuse, the relationship between the abuser and the victim, and whether or not the situation had been validated.

She argues that cloning is, "an unprecedented advance in medical research" and should be used to its full potential.
