Sample text

Scientists and scientific knowledge have been implicated in maintaining political and social systems that oppress women. The work of scientists is prestigious and well-paying. For these reasons alone, women need to gain access. Feminist Critiques of Science The extensive scholarship of feminist philosophers and scientists forms the epistemological backbone of feminist pedagogy in science. Feminist scientists have developed powerful critiques of scientific theories used to justify the oppression of women in Western society.

Because I am a feminist educator and teacher researcher, my goal is to challenge and change, not to replicate. Therefore it is necessary to express my political, social, and theoretical places in the world as clearly as possible. As do other feminist researchers, I distinguish myself from other qualitative researchers by “put[ting] the social construction of gender at the center of . . inquiry,” while “the methodological task . . has become generating and refining more interactive, contextualized methods in the search for pattern and meaning rather than for prediction and control” (Lather, 1991, p.

117). Put up against the typical scientific rationality that permeates modern Western science, any mention of the word love is certain to raise a few eyebrows. 28 Connecting Girls and Science A less poetic and possibly more conservative alternative to traditional objectivity is the strong objectivity of Sandra Harding (1987). She begins with the unassailable claim that women and non-White middle- and upper-class men have been and continue to be excluded from the practice of science. Coupling this with the observation that there are personal and social forces that affect the choice of scientific questions, determine what is counted as knowledge, and influence who is heard and who is silenced, Harding argues that the inclusion of women and those men whom science has made unwelcome would create a wider and more socially relevant science.
