The Politics of Women’s Biology
Ruth Hubbard, Rutgers University Press, 1990
From the Amazon.com product description:
For a range of historical and contemporary issues in eugenics, human evolution, and procreative technology, Ruth Hubbard explains why scientific descriptions and choices should not generalize human, or female, attributes without acknowledging the realities of people’s lives. Sophisticated in its analysis, yet not at all technical in its exposition, this book will find a wide readership among feminists, the general public, and the scientific community.
The book is available at the UW Libraries. From the reviews, it sounds like this book will also serve to remind us that scientific studies are not as unbiased as we would like and that every scientist brings their own background and opinions into their work.
