    Abstract

    Review of 'Femininity, Mathematics and Science, 1880–1914', by Claire G. Jones. In Femininity, Mathematics and Science 1880-1914 Jones uses the contrasting experiences of Hertha Ayrton and Grace Chisholm Young as the basis for her examination of these male dominated fields of work. Her purpose is not merely to add another stone in the developing edifice of the history of women’s working lives, but also to ‘move gender from the periphery… … to the theoretical centre of the histories of mathematics and science’.
