White Feminism and Eugenics: The Case of Gertrude Davenport by Jenna Tonn 

"My Working Will be the Work": Maintenance Art and Technologies of Change by Anna Reser 

In this issue, Jenna Tonn recovers the story of eugenicist Gertrude Davenport and shows how her work, often placed in the context of feminism by contemporaries, exemplifies how white women scientists serve to consolidate patriarchy's power. Anna Reser looks to the work of feminist artists to draw attention to the maintenance of technology and systems.
