Abstract: Feminist knowledge and its impact on other academic disciplines arose in the 1970s, but it has had an uneven impact in different disciplines. We argue that gender as a theoretical concept has challenged both sociology and archaeology but analyses of gender practices and embodiment which challenge the homogenous categories of 'women' and 'men' have made much less impact in archaeology – particularly the archaeology of deep time. The paper concludes by suggesting that feminist archaeology's exploration of the origins of gender offers critical insights concerning the ways in which feminist sociologists define their theories with and against the 'Western folk model' of sex and gender.
