Abstract

Despite the development of a vast body of literature pertaining to feminism and science, examples of how feminist philosophies might be applied to scientific theories and practice have been limited. Moreover, most scientists remain unfamiliar with how feminism pertains to their work. Using the example of the immune system, this paper applies three feminist epistemologies-feminist empiricism, feminist standpoint theory, and feminist postmodernism-to assess competing claims of immune function within a feminist context.
