Body

This volume offers new and useful understandings of the epistemology (methods and basis) of the development of women's knowledge. From interviews with 135 women (mostly privileged college students), the authors determine five learning "perspectives" that characterize "women's way of knowing." The authors looked for patterns in the responses they received, and were able to draw together a concept of how women deal with knowledge. The authors identified five different "ways of knowing" that women utilize.
