Quotes edit

  • Feminist-in and out of science- often condemn masculine bias in the sciences from the vantage point of commitment to a value-free science. Androcentric bias, once identified , can then be seen as a violation of the rules, as "bad" science. Feminist science, by contrast, can eliminate that bias and produce better, good, more true, or gender-free science.
