Science and scientists are influenced by their larger cultural environment. I compiled data and past research on women in ecology to show how the experience and participation of women in the Ecological Society of America has changed and put it in the context of feminist movements in the United States.

I curate a Mendeley collection on gender and science. Please follow the group or join to contribute!
