Feminist and postmodernist attempts to reform mathematics are self-defeating. This essay shows how the projects of ethnomathematics and female-friendly science pedagogy actually ended up alienating and undermining the very groups they intended to help.

Keywords:   ethnomathematics, Collins, Pinch, Sue Rossiter, feminist science, scientific literacy, science pedagogy
