BANDEIRA, Lourdes. The contribution of the feminist criticism to science.Traduzido porNina Adel, Regina Camargo. Estud. fem. [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0104-026X.
The text discusses the contribution brought by the feminist criticism to the scientific knowledge, as an increasing variety of ways of thinking can be observed. Science, guided by the production of scientific knowledge, presupposes neutrality, universalism and objectiveness, which goes beyond its "masculine" characteristics. The feminist criticism evidenced some limits imposed to the greater access of women to scientific careers. The text emphasizes how the notion of gender becomes significant, since it introduces other components in the scientific practices.
