"Truth" and Advocacy: A Feminist Perspective.
Myers, JoAnne; Tronto, Joan C.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v31 n4 p808-810 Dec 1998
Demonstrates that dismissals of feminist instruction are inappropriate because everyone is an advocate, feminist research into the nature of knowledge repositions the questions about advocacy, and the reconceptualization of knowledge requires instructional changes. Argues that feminist advocacy has a fundamental and critical agenda: to rethink what might constitute "truth." (CMK)
