The conceptual framework

The gender dimension describes the way in which culturally organized differences between men and women interact with historically and socially diverse scientific and technological practices and their meanings. Scientific and technological cultures and practices shape gendered social relations and, in turn, are shaped by them (see Collins, 19911; Connell, 1985; Cook and Fonow, 1991; Harding, 1986, 1987, 1991; Harding and O'Barr, 1987; Lorber and Farrell, 1991; Zuckerman et al, 1991). Thus the science and technology (S&T) that each culture has are a consequence, in part, of local and global gender relations, and each culture's gender relations are the effect, in part, of past local and global S&T changes.
