The Feminist Perspective on Science: Is Reconceptualization Possible?
Rosser, Sue V.
Some feminists have become discouraged because the theoretical and conceptual changes leading to a feminist science have not yet occurred. A scheme has been developed which charts the phases through which the disciplines in the social sciences and humanities progressed before reconceptualization from the new scholarship on women transformed those disciplines. Application of this scheme to biology, the discipline within the sciences with the most activity regarding feminism and science, suggests that biology is only beginning to approach the phase of reconceptualization. The roots and form of a feminist science undoubtedly lie in the phases which we have completed; we may be on the threshold of discovering the framework of the feminist science. (Author)
