Advocacy is also often reactive and implemented through lobbying, litigation, media alerts, and so forth, to influence policies and public opinion. Such advocacy attacks the intermediate level of institutional or bureaucratic norms. This kind of structural confrontation usually is used as a means to achieve collective demands of reform in policy. In summary, what characterizes pathfinders is their reflexive consciousness and purposeful action.

Two hypotheses were affirmed by Gumport’s study. First, the emergence and legitimation of feminist scholars was associated with the receptivity of individual disciplines working within a variety of paradigms (that is, assumptions of knowledge, centrality of theories, basic epistemologies, and methodologies of the fields). Three disciplines were investigated—history, sociology, and philosophy. These disciplinary settings comprised the immediate contexts in which the feminist interests of women academics could be developed or encompassed.
