Why are objectivity and reason characterized as male and subjectivity and feeling as female? How does this characterization affect the goals and methods of scientific enquiry? This ground-breaking work explores the possibilities of a gender-free science and the conditions that could make such a possibility a reality.
"Written with grace and clarity, this book will stand as an important contribution to feminist theory, to the sociology of knowledge, and to the continuing critique of the established scientific method." - Lillian B. Rubin
