"Many men who work with technology presume that their technical aptitude flows naturally from their gender. The unconscious, deep-seated belief that the words “masculine” and “technical” belong together by nature is based precariously on men’s claim to a superior level of objectivity. If women represent nature, how can we be objective or scientific? Many men see the phrase “female scientist” as a contradiction in terms."
