Starting from the History of Turin Women and Science Group and of the National Coordination of Science Women, the authoress portraits the binding between Feminisms and the focusing on Sciences in the passage from Seventies to Eighties in Italy and other areas. In this context, the use of Sciences and the level of access in academic positions for women, together with a reflection on Feminist Epistemology of Sciences and the affirmation of Gender category in Italy are the most followed issues. Abortion and contraception, as they were former feminist issues, come again at the attention as part of a critical point of view over bioethics and biotechnologies, inquiring the way how scientific method and technologies can be useful and helpful for women
