ABIR-AM, Pnina Geraldine. Gender and Technoscience: A Historical Perspective. Journal of Technology Management & Innovation [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.1, pp.152-165. ISSN 0718-2724.

This paper explores turning points in the historical relationship between gender and technoscience, most notably the gender parity of the 2009 Nobel Prizes; the public debate on the under-representation of women in science that raged world-wide but especially in the US during 2005-2006; and the construction of a public memory for a leading woman technoscientist in the mid-1990s. The paper situates these turning points in the context of historical events, most notably the Scientific Revolution of the 17 th Century, WW2 and the Cold War, the women's liberation movement of the 1970s that legally ended overt gender discrimination, and the rise of covert gender discrimination since the 1990s. It concludes by highlighting the shift toward interactiveness and fluidity in the theoretical conceptions of both gender and technoscience.

Palabras clave : covert discrimination; gender; history; parity; power relations; public memory; technoscience; women scientists.
