Women, Science, and Technology is an ideal reader for courses in feminist science studies, science studies more generally, women’s studies, and studies in gender and education. This second edition fully updates its predecessor, dropping ten readings and replacing them with new ones that:

  • extend content coverage into areas not originally included, such as reproductive, agricultural, medical and imaging technologies
  • reflect new feminist theory and research on biology, language, the global economy and the intersection of race and class with gender
  • provide current statistical information about the representation of women and people of colour in science, technology, engineering and mathematics
  • are more accessible for students.

Section introductions have also been fully updated to cover the latest controversies, such as Harvard president Lawrence Summers’ widely debated discussion about women and science and the current debates surrounding reports on the low numbers of female engineers.
