Value-free science? Haha


It is taking me into a wondrous world, writing my second chapter. Everybody may say science is neutral or value-free and usefull for society equally, for both men and women. After finishing my first chapter, I have to admit that males built the Internet infrastructure in Indonesia: male scholars, male hobbyists, and male bureaucrats. Reasoning stupidly, as the patriarchal world’s dim view of feminine attributes, and this view then has constructed the gendered world, a place that has been divided into two different areas: feminine and masculine. How can they accomodate women’s needs – those males who built the Internet infrastructure in Indonesia?
