ABSTRAKT

In this exploration of some possible pathways into feminist physics, I take ideas from feminist philosophers of science and feminist science studies scholars about what feminist science should be. I look at the work of feminist scientists in other fields as role models. Using these guidelines, I develop nine categories of projects that are feminist or potentially feminist. I illustrate these categories with examples of contemporary physics research. With this work I hope to guide the steps of feminist physics and encourage other feminist scientists to develop these and other projects.
