Feminist philosophy of religion is a tool for the development of justice in theory as well as practice. As such, it claims to root itself in women's experience: not ‘religious experience’ narrowly defined, but the standpoint of women's lives. Yet until now efforts to develop theology from women's expenence have largely fallen back into traditional sources of religious knowledge. A consideration of standpoint theory enables a more radical grounding in women's expenence as the source of religious knowledge. The work of Luce Ingaray may be considered as one such attempt, seeking to build a philosophy of religion on die basis of a female gendered divine as the horizon of becoming.
