Abstract The colonization process of Europe and civilization in the Americas set up his «world system» and with it the «single truth» that considers no human any knowledge different. Latin American critical thought propose unlearn western models and transform knowledge systems. The reason objective, scientific, positivist is put on trial. Women’s Studies emerged as critical vision and defies patriarchal reason, that becomes invisible to women and distorts their contribution to knowledge. Feminist critical theory is a strategy to dismantle the epistemological paradigm that justifies beliefs, dogmas, customs, traditions of male authority. The study of the body is an epistemological challenge to feminist studies.
