"Feminist science studies had become more philosophical and more ambitious by the 1980s and even pursued to redefine the core epistemological concepts. The reason for this shift in feminist science studies was due to a corresponding shift in many fields of academic feminism. This shift led to a parting of ways between scholarship on “women in science” and “feminist critiques of science”. This was documented by feminist scholars Helen Longino and Evelynn Hammonds in their 1990 paper Conflicts and Tensions in the Feminist Study of Gender and Science." --Sholem Stein
