Feminists and Science brings critical voices to bear upon the relationship between science, gender and patriarchies, critique science and reclaim it with equal passion. Feminist critiques of science have uncovered the ideological biases in scientific discourse and also begun reforming and reinventing disciplinary canons. Many such critiques have been developed in the West; the significance of the Indian contribution to this debate is that it offers a different perspective, drawing upon the experience of how science and technology has impacted the lives of Indian women, their work and their bodies.

The contributors, from different disciplinary locations in the social sciences, the humanities and the natural sciences, raise a variety of issues in science criticism, presenting feminist positions in fields including health, pedagogy, livelihood and sexuality. The two volumes offer a pioneering and valuable contribution to science studies and women’s studies in India.
