Elizabeth Garbee, science policy analyst with the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes at Arizona State University, has reviewed our Data Feminism for Issues!
“The authors ask questions such as, how can we use data to remake the world? And how do systems of oppression intersect with one another? In response, they enumerate seven core principles (such as “Rethink binaries and hierarchies”) that they believe can help society wield the power of data science to address inequality and oppression. Each of the principles receives its own subsequent chapter. This organizational strategy makes it easy to apply these principles to specific situations, and creates a sort of reverberation of ideas through the whole book.”
