SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY SINCE THE GENDER PERSPECTIVE

N.P. Maldonado Reynoso

Instituto Politecnico Nacional (MEXICO)
In this century, the scientific and technological development has brought a big impact in different spheres of society like health, economics, and many others fields. Some studies discuss the relationship between scientific and technological development and the country┬┤s richness, but one thing is true, its impact is unquestionable for social transformation
The development of science and technology becomes key, so the World Bank indicates that science and technology will eliminate the poverty, this is a real concern because there are large differences in rich and poor countries. Although science and technology is not a panacea to eradicate poverty, surely it will help to eliminate these differences.
The development and scientific-technological appropriation, not the same in all countries and it is not the same as to the participation of men and women, which calls us to reflect about the causes of variability and its consequences. This is the reason that gender studies are very interested in the inclusion of women in the fields in which they had been excluded, such as in science. Noticing that the inclusion of women in the the traditional system scientific positioned as not equal to men, we found it necessary to question since scientific epistemology feminist.
Feminist research is a particular way of knowing and producing knowledge, their main interest is to eliminate gender inequalities which mark the relations of power between women and men and access to the centers and positions of power to help eradicate gender inequality, which is to undertake research "from", "with" and "for" women (Casta├▒eda, 2008).
This paper will present some of the results of the participation of women in the field of science, particularly to make a comparison of women's participation in the world and as that participation is related to scientific educational levels. These results are part of a wider investigation that is being done at the National Polytechnic Institute (Mexico) with a gender perspective in order to identify the participation of women in the scientific-technology field.
