   schema:description "What is specifically feminist perspective on science and technology? Focusing in particular on the socio-cultural implications of the latest scientific and technological developments, this book proposes a site of resistance to hegemonic discourse and practices of science and technology. It is divided into four sections covering science as a whole, the new technologies of the postmodern era, bio-medical discourses, and nature. A distinguished cast of contributors explores the central feminist concerns in each arena, through the central metaphors of monster, mother goddess and cyborg. They look at the consequences of gynogenesis, postmodern eco-buddhism in heathcare, sexual violence in cyberspace, the postmodernization of menopause, the dolphin as androgyne and feminist environmentalism. Throughout they are concerned to demonstrate the importance of dialogue between the natural and social sciences."@en ;

   schema:description "This important book shows that feminists cannot ignore either the emancipatory or the oppressive potential of technological progress. Bringing together 'natural' and 'social' scientists, the book paves the way for a specifically feminist strategy for science, technology, and health care. As such, it is vital reading for students, academics and activists in women's studies, cultural studies, the philosophy and social studies of science, health and the environment."@en ;
