    Suzanne Lipu, in Practising Information Literacy, Feminist epistemologies. Epistemologies are theories about the nature of knowledge. Feminist epistemologies form a subset of social epistemologies, which examine the interplay between knowledge and social relations and institutions (Pressley ).Feminist epistemologies deny the existence of one truth per se and focus on whose knowledge. Science, Technology and Gender studies (STG) include the different approaches to feminist epistemologies, their current debates and also the theoretical analysis of different scientific controversies around cases that involve women's bodies and health, sex/gender, and techno-scientific practices. These studies are linked to the demand for another type of hybrid knowledge that revalorizes the Author: Eulalia Pérez Sedeño, Lola S. Almendros, S. García Dauder, Eulalia Piñero Gil.

Feminists have rejected objectivism, and have instead proposed an understanding of knowledge as a relationship between the knower and that which is known – a relational epistemology – and between the knower and society: a Author: Lisa L. Stenmark.

It focuses on the heart of traditional epistemology - a field of study that until now has proved largely impervious to feminist enquiry.Sandra Harding organized feminist epistemology into three categories: feminist empiricism, standpoint epistemology, and post-modern epistemology.

While potentially a limited set of categories, post-modern feminism was a transitional ideology that denounced absolute objectivity and asserted the death of the meta-narrative.
