    the ways in which vs the ways that / which

    Hi,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marxist...ote-Ferguson-1

    - Marxist feminism is a branch of feminism focused on investigating and explaining the ways in which women are oppressed through systems of capitalism and private property.

    I would like to ask if we can use 'that or which or where or which . . . in' instead of 'in which' in that sentence:

    - Marxist feminism is a branch of feminism focused on investigating and explaining the ways that women are oppressed through systems of capitalism and private property.

    - Marxist feminism is a branch of feminism focused on investigating and explaining the ways which women are oppressed through systems of capitalism and private property.

    - Marxist feminism is a branch of feminism focused on investigating and explaining the ways where women are oppressed through systems of capitalism and private property.

    - Marxist feminism is a branch of feminism focused on investigating and explaining the ways which women are oppressed through systems of capitalism and private property in.

    Thanks.

    Re: the ways in which vs the ways that / which

    No. None of those are grammatical.

    Re: the ways in which vs the ways that / which

    Thanks for the answer but I cannot understand why 'where' is not grammatical. I thought I could because 'in which' is equal to 'where.'
