Abstract

Suggests the unsuitability of any of the major classification schemes to adequately cope with the needs of a researcher in the field of women′s studies. Asks if women could devise a radical new classification system scheme in which the conceptual base could be transformed, not merely tacked on to other disciplines or separated altogether. Concludes that at the extreme the Dewey system could well be seen to represent the patriarchal order of things that so many women are fighting to change.
