AbstractThe goal of this special session is to examine the way we as engineers frame stories about engineers and engineering, and to ask: do we need to embrace new stories? We will explore traditional stories about engineers and engineering ethics and ask, how might these stories, and the kind of engineering practice and education they inspire, change if framed from a feminist perspective? The outcomes of this session are to build a greater community interested in social engagement, engineering ethics, and feminist methodologies as they apply to engineering. 2008 IEEE.
