Feminist theory and the challenge to knowledges
This paper explores the phallocentric nature of methodologies, frameworks, and presumptions dominant within the social sciences and humanities. It attempts to analyse the recent history of feminist theory, from the 1960s to the 1980s, in the light of the challenges it has posed to mainstream methodologies, and to evaluate its effectiveness in terms of its ability to move beyond these frameworks. In particular, the common presumptions of neutrality, objectivity, truthful, perspectiveless knowledges, and transparent languages are examined from a feminist point of view. © 1987.
