A feminist analysis of the gendered concepts and practices of science, showing how science and technology impact women’s bodies, lives and work

Feminists and Science, volume 2, critiques the relationship between science, gender and patriarchies in the Indian context from a multi-disciplinary perspective. This volume addresses the complexity of local knowledge and the politics of knowledge-making, interrogates how creativity and the practices of science are gendered, explores the methodologies of doing science differently and moves towards a more inclusive pedagogy. It draws upon the experience of how science and technology has impacted Indian women, going beyond the problems of women scientists in institutions, and offers a pioneering contribution to both science and women’s studies.
