Why do science and technology professions have so few women?

Why do we think that some technologies are more appropriate for men or for women?

How does biology shape the way we understand ourselves as male and female?

This class will explore the many complex relationships between gender, science, and technology. We will examine the gendered history of Western science and engineering, study the gender politics of technoscience, and explore how those politics affect us every day.
