The Gender/Science System: Or, Is Sex to Gender as Nature Is to Science?

Hypatia 2 (3):37 - 49 (1987)
Abstract
In this paper, I explore the problematic relation between sex and gender in parallel with the equally problematic relation between nature and science. I also offer a provisional analysis of the political dynamics that work to polarize both kinds of discourse, focusing especially on their intersection (i.e., on discussions of gender and science), and on that group most directly affected by all of the above considerations (i.e., women scientists).
