The answer to the question posed by the title is "Yes, but not enough." Londa Schiebinger specializes in gender issues in science, and this is a synthesis of her earlier books, ranging through history to uncover the many women whose work has been overlooked, if not stolen, by male scientists over the centuries, as well as the women who have made a difference in fields as diverse as medicine, archeology and primatology...Schiebinger also offers a number of suggestions for change. Globe and Mail 20010618 This is by no means a specialist or polemical book: on the contrary it courts a wide readership, offering a brilliant general picture of the development of science and the current state of play, seen through the frame of a feminist vision, which is at once celebratory and critical...Schiebinger's thoroughly accessible and informative writing, like a good public service radio program, draws people into areas they didn't know could interest them, and sends them away with ideas for further reflection. -- Barbara Crowther Public Understanding of Science In the past 30 years, feminists have produced major critiques of science...there have also been several modern histories of women scientists, new biographies, and numerous research studies of their recent career developments. Schiebinger's latest book is a summary to date of this body of knowledge...a very rich area of critical analysis. -- Judith Lorber Ideology and Cultural Production Schiebinger's questions and conclusions should interest all veterinarians, since we are currently living through a dramatic-and much debated-alteration in the gender composition of our profession. Work such as Schiebinger's, although scholarly and not specific to veterinary medicine, helps us to think about our own professional transformation...Sciebinger's 'feminism' then, is a point of view that attacks narrowness in scientific thought and practice. She says that 'after a while, change builds on change.' Let us all work towards the day when we can answer the question 'has feminism changed veterinary medicine' with a resounding 'yes.' -- Susan D. Jones, D.V.M., PhD Association for Women VeterinariansVom Verlag:
Do women do science differently? This is a history of women in science and a frank assessment of the role of gender in shaping scientific knowledge. Science is both a profession and a body of knowledge, and Londa Schiebinger looks at how women have fared and performed in both instances. Shoe first considers the lives of women scientists, past and present. Schiebinger debunks the myth that women scientists - because they are women - are somehow more holistic and integrative and create more cooperative scientific communities. However, have feminist perspectives brought any positive change to scientific knowledge? Schiebinger provides a nuanced gender analysis of the physical sciences, medicine, archaeology, evolutionary biology, primatology, and developmental biology. She also shows that feminist scientists have developed new theories, asked new questions, and opened new fields in many of these areas.
