This volume critiques the relationship between science, gender and patriarchies in the Indian context from a multi-disciplinary perspective. It addresses the complexity of local knowledge and the politics of knowledge-making, interrogates how creativity and the practices of science are gendered, explores the methodologies of doing science differently and moves towards a more inclusive pedagogy. It draws upon the experience of how science and technology has impacted Indian women, going beyond the problems of women scientists in institutions, and offers a pioneering contribution to both science and women’s studies.
