Archaeologists have been slow to embrace feminist scholarship. Although most still avoid the term “feminism,” an archaeology of gender has emerged and thrived. This article explores the history of women and feminism in archaeology, examines a few of the central issues addressed by feminist and gender-oriented archaeologists, briefly addresses equity issues for women archaeologists, and identifies some future directions.
