Gnostic Feminism

Gnosticism is often portrayed as feminist in some sense because it promoted equality of the sexes. But if I'm correctly understanding J. Puma's essay on what Gnostics mean when they say the world is an illusion, it looks like they also had the idea of situated knowledges figured out 2,000 years before Donna Haraway (though feminists accept situatedness rather than hoping for gnosis to overcome it).
