      To be clear, science does not yet have a definitive answer regarding the biology of gender identity. The underlying biology is complex and particularly difficult to study in humans. But at the same time, it is quite clear that if lawmakers, lawyers, and presidents are to engage in a debate that turns on biology, then state-of-the-art biological. The book Osiris, Volume Women, Gender, and Science: New Directions, Edited by Sally Gregory Kohlstedt and Helen Longino is published by University of Chicago Press Journals.

      Meanwhile, science-fiction writers like Ann Leckie write about future societies in which gender is so different as to be virtually unrecognizable. Leckie’s Imperial Radch trilogy is a sweeping space opera with a sprawling cast of characters, a ruthless space tyrant, sentient ships, mysterious alien races and a tortured, determined, daring.   Caroline Criado Perez is the winner of the prestigious Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize. Here's what the judges said about her book on gender bias in data - and the other five books on the shortlist.

    Gender and the Science of Difference examines how contemporary science shapes and is shaped by gender ideals and images. This interdisciplinary volume presents empirical inquiries into today's science, including examples of gendered scientific inquiry and medical interventions and research. Book Description. Does gender matter in global climate change? This timely and provocative book takes readers on a guided tour of basic climate science, then holds up a gender lens to find out what has been overlooked in popular discussion, research, and policy debates.

As technology documents illness with ever greater precision and clarity, the knowledge and vocabulary of patients is being similarly expanded by activists, consumer advocates, and artists working with new electronic technologies.

Throughout the Western world, the relationship between gender, science and math­ ematics has emerged as critical in a variety of contexts. In tertiary institutions, the study of "gender issues", frequently with reference to science and mathematics, is of central significance to many disciplines.
