Overview
"Challenging Situatedness" contends that the production of knowledge is just that a production, and one fraught with intrinsic and often unconscious biases.

Drawing on international research studies from Cameroon, Ghana, India, and Sweden, among others "Challenging Situatedness "is a vital exploration of feminist theory in practice."
