This article critically examines ''women's ways of knowing'' in relation to science and explores possibilities for developing a more feminist approach to science and science education for adults which is rooted in women's experiences and lives. Our research on women's perceptions of science forms the basis of our article. Drawing on recent debates within feminist epistemology and philosophy of science, we argue that a more democratic science needs to include the standpoints of ''excluded others.'' For this reason, neither feminists nor adult educators can afford to stand ''outside science.'' To be responsible knowers and educators they must engage with it.
