There are a number of phenomena which can be analysed in relation to epistemic injustice, either as its sources, manifestations or implications. The aim of the study is to show social consequences of epistemic violence, and the related epistemic ignorance, as well as pointing out that social injustice is deeply rooted in the epistemic layer, which sanctions and justifies it, while making it invisible. Wide ramifications of relationships between these two necessitate complementing traditional epistemology with social epistemology focused on practical social effects of particular epistemological assumptions.
