Science from women’s lives. Better Science? How gendered studies improve science and lives

Carmen Magallón Portolés


Gender analysis have recently opened new paths for innovation and excellence. They are the basis for the Gendered Innovations project, led by the historian of science Londa Schiebinger, with the joint effort of the European Union. It did not come out of nowhere. It is supported by decades of gender and science studies consisting of lines of research that made a critical review of the history of science and recovered the contributions from women to different scientific fields. This paper reviews the origin and genealogy of the project, highlights its positive turn and shows examples of its achievements.
