Abstract

We have chosen to examine our engineers’ lives under the categories ‘public’ and ‘private’, not because we see these as natural categories, where women belong naturally to the private world where reproduction occurs, and men naturally to the public world where production occurs, but because they are useful analytical categories. They are power categories.
