Abstract

Is in some way more appropriate.I believe that the view that female scientists are better suited to study other females (from our own or from other species), and more prepared to redress the biases of early studies, simply perpetuates the view that both sexes are inherently biased in the ways they do science. If they are, both must be wrong and, sadly, two wrongs don't make a right.If our personal (or ideological) views influence the way in which we interpret the natural world,the scientific method is there to help us out.
