This article uses concepts from Amartya Sen’s work on inequality to frame gender issues in science and technology policy. The author examines how programs focusing on increasing the number of women in science and engineering careers have not generally addressed a broader set of circumstances that intersect with gender at various economic levels and stages of life, and how the agendas in research and innovation policies and the allocation of funding also need to reflect these issues.
