Women’s Commission

The Commission on Women and Gender Studies of the DHST was founded in 1981 by the General Assembly of the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science.
The aim of the Commission is to promote communication among scholars working on women’s history in science, technology and medicine and also to foster research on the relation of gender and science, technology, and medicine.

One of the Commission’s tasks is to hold meetings between Congresses of the IUHPS/DHST and to form symposia at subsequent International Congresses.
