In Disruptive Voices, Michelle Fine charts the beginnings of a creative solution to the emerging and hotly contested issues to feminist scholarship and feminist philosophy of science. Moving beyond the feminist critique of traditional scientific method and epistemology, Fine identities new research methods that, while still empirical, have the potential to disrupt and transform conventional practices. In drawing these alternative methodologies from the actual experiences of women's lives, Fine imagines "what could be" for girls and women across lines of race, class, sexuality, and disability.
