I introduce three models for understanding how feminist values can legitimately guide research in the social sciences. The three models are based on three arguments against the value-free ideal: an argument based on pluralism with respect to epistemic values; an argument based on inductive risk; and an argument based on value-laden background assumptions. I argue that Miriam Solomon’s and Helen Longino’s social epistemologies can be seen as attempts to implement the liberal democratic values of equality and neutrality in science policy. Given this interpretation, their social epistemologies give both epistemic and political justification for the view that some research projects can be committed to feminist values explicitly.
