The first book of its kind to provide a full and comprehensive historical grounding of the contemporary issues of gender and women in science.

Women in Science includes a detailed survey of the history behind the popular subject and engages the reader with a theoretical and informed understanding with significant issues like science and race, gender and technology and masculinity.

It moves beyond the historical work on women and science by avoiding focusing on individual women scientists.
