Gender theorists such as Evelyn Fox Keller suggest that science, through its association with objectivity, is inherently masculine. According to this theory women who enter science do so at considerable cost to their psyches. Such a view rests on weak evidence and is historically untenable; it can only hinder, and not help, efforts to improve women's position in society.
