Feminist physics is a term used to describe the encroachment of feminist ideology in to physics. Feminists seek to alter physics and argue that they have already had an effect on physics.

(BABY) STEPS TOWARD FEMINIST PHYSICS is a 2012 article written by Barbara Whitten. Whitten asserts that some recent scientific developments that benefitted women were feminist in nature. She fails to mention the reproductive pill or the forceps which both improved the lives of women and, like most other discoveries and inventions, came from men.

Whitten then goes on to discuss a variety of points such as increasing diversity in physics and even changing the way that physics is undertaken.
