This chapter explores the tremendous possibilities of coalitions and collaboration between women's studies and women in science and engineering (WISE) initiatives. At this time, with few exceptions, WISE programs tend not to be centrally located in feminist science studies or women's studies programs and departments. Women and gender studies programs, in turn, have too few allies in science and engineering fields. Thus, while all three fields—WISE programs, feminist science studies, and women/gender/sexuality studies—can arguably be said to be thriving, there is little interaction between them. The chapter suggests that WISE programs can yield impressive results if they engaged more fully with feminist work in the social sciences and the humanities.

Keywords:   WISE programs, women's studies, feminism, feminist science studies, gender studies, social sciences, humanities
