Tait on “Do Patents Have Gender?” by Dan Burk

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Allison Tait, a Gender Equity and Policy Postdoctoral Associate with the Yale Women Faculty Form has posted a review of Dan Burk’s piece, Do Patents Have Gender?  Dr. Tait writes:

While Burk would like to separate gender realities from gender theory, the two are not so easy to disentangle. The marginalization of women scientists continues to inform the framework of feminist theory. What is interesting, however, is to speculate about the kind of patents we will see when women scientists reach parity and have the luxury of large shops of their own.
