Una constante en la historia del feminismo es la resistencia contra marcos metodológicos y resultados de investigación que excluyen sistemáticamente la experiencia de los individuos y las comunidades menos privilegiadas, basándose en la intersección de identidades – raza, género, casta, sexualidad y etnicidad.
Feminist ways of knowing have paid close attention to the power dynamics of knowledge-making and extraction. In this editorial, we look at how these questions are of importance especially in relation to research that seeks to contribute to liberation and transformation of technology to be used by women and people of diverse sexualities and genders.
