Science and Gender
Evelyn Fox KellerStreaming Video - 2010
When in the 1950s Evelyn Fox Keller ventured forth to become a scientist, she discovered it was a man's world. Training as a theoretical physicist and working in both mathematical biology and the history of science, she wondered why most scientists were men and why the language of science reflected masculine metaphors and values. Keller has grappled with the meaning and consequences of these stereotypes ever since. In this program with Bill Moyers, Keller discusses how gender plays a significant role in the language that scientists use to describe their work.
