"The scope of the book is wide, and I would recommend it as a text book for students in the final year of their degree, postgraduate students and also to academics in general. It is very clearly written and the issues are explained in detail and contextualised adequately. There is no simplification of the topics, and the analyses offered by Tanesini are throrough. I would classify this as an accessible but sophisticated introduction to feminist epistemology." Stella Gonzalez Arnal, Women's Philosophy Review, no. 24, 2000
