Why are mammals called mammals?


The project is an adaptation of the paper, ‘Why are Mammals called Mammals? Gender Politics in Eighteenth Century Natural History’ by Dr. Londa Schiebinger. It talks about how the classification of mammals and inclusion of humans in the class is influenced by the cultural view of breasts, women and animals. As shared by Dr. Schiebinger, the term still exists Post-Darwinian Revolution.
