The paper examines the connection between the situation of women in philosophy and feminist knowledge. Feminist knowledge refers, on this occasion, not only to scientific knowledge, but also to knowledge on the problems of women in philosophy. The focus is on the role of the young woman and the hurdles which she needs to negotiate in order to gain a foothold in the scientific field. The investigation into this problem takes the form of a case study, which demonstrates the gendered discrimination in the scientific sphere at the universities.
