This work explores the possibility of a feminist way of knowing and of a feminist science and the practical consequences a feminist method might have for social, political and gender relations. In the first part of the book Sandra Harding discusses the interfaces between science and feminism and the possibility of a feminist science. In part two she explores feminist epistemology, and feminist and "pre-feminist" postmodernism. Finally, in part three she steps back from the feminist science and epistemology controversies and explores the perspectives that coloured people, lesbians and others bring to these issues.
