Welcome to Gap Junction Science!

GJS is an online home for the meeting points between science and feminism. You might share our passion for science and feminism, be curious about what feminism has to offer science, or be wondering how to actually conduct feminist science in your lab. Join our community and be a part of seeing feminist science build itself!

Gap Junction Science is site for all things feminist sciencey. Also feministy science. And, of course, feministy sciencey. It’s a home for anyone interested in the meeting points between science and feminism including science faculty, nonacademic scientists, feminist and gender scholars, post docs, grad students, undergraduates, and anyone else interested.

At Gap Junction Science, we post about what feminist science might involve, how it might reflect diverse and progressive perspectives, what it should or could entail, and even what feminist science might already look like.

We’re scientists; let’s operationalize our terms. And we’re feminists, so let’s state the unspoken. See our FAQ page for how Gap Junction Science defines terms like science and feminism. We have standards, just like you. See our Community Standards here.
