Review:

“The fully revised and updated Second Edition... draws on the expertise of a wide group of interdisciplinary scholars who aim to cover cutting-edge research methods and explore research questions related to the complex and diverse issues that deeply impact women’s lives...it will be valuable for academics already working from or looking to develop their understanding and use of feminist research practices...this collection offers an engaging look at feminist research practice. It is particularly strengthened by examples of feminist research in practice throughout, and the addition of exercises and resources to initiate further discussion and reflection.” (To Read the entire review click here.) (Emma Smith, PhD Candidate)

“This strength of this text rests in the coverage given to multiple methodological approaches. Students who read all the articles will come away with a strong foundation to help them apply a feminist lens and framework to their own research and writing.”

Rachel Sutz Pienta, Valdosta State University 

(Rachel Sutz Pienta 2013-06-25)

“The Behind-the-Scenes parts really capture students’ attention and help students see theory and method in practice...”

M. Cristina Alcalde, University of Kentucky   



(M. Cristina Alcalde 2013-06-25)

“The key strength of this text for me is the organization of the book and the Behind-the-Scenes textboxes within the chapters.”            

Arlene Sgoutas, Metropolitan State College of Denver 

(Arlene Sgoutas 2013-06-25)

“It is well organized—introduction, application and synopsis. I like the way different authors cover different methods so you are truly getting people who know and use the methods.”

Jo Reger, Oakland University

(Jo Reger 2013-06-25)

“This is the most inclusive and accessible primer on feminist research methods out there. In addition, the book is adaptable to many different points of focus that instructors might have; that is, it would work well with supplemental readings or other texts that have a more specific focus.”

—M. Joan McDermott, Southern Illinois University Carbondale

(M. Joan McDermott 2013-06-25)

“This is one of the most well organized books that I teach. I especially appreciate how each chapter in Section 2 focuses on a different feminist research method and provides examples of how scholars have used this method in their own research. I find that students have a much easier time grasping methodological concepts when they can read about the theory behind a particular method and examples all in the same chapter. I also use chapters 1, 3 and 4 to frame the debates and stakes within the field of feminist research methods.” 

Lena McQuade, Sonoma State University
(Lena McQuade 2013-06-25)

“Its organization is coherent and logical.  The text provides a good introduction to the feminist scholarship and includes theoretical and empirical articles, which provides a well-rounded discussion of the research disciplinary practices for students.”

Ann Marie Nicolosi, The College of New Jersey
(Ann Marie Nicolosi Ann Marie Nicolosi 2013-06-25)

“Key strengths are coverage of interviewing, feminist ethnography, and the practice of program evaluation. Particularly clear and useful for students is the chapter on in-depth interviewing.”    

—Julia L. Offen, Cornell University

(Julia L. Offen 2013-06-25)

“I think the book does a great job of showing how feminist thought influences how researchers do research on a practical level—and I think this is something that other qual text books do not always do so well. It’s easier to explain a critical perspective, but how that perspective actually influences the researcher in the field can be harder to show. I really liked how possible research questions were used in the post-modern chapters to illustrate how, in practice, these theoretical perspectives actually shape how social scientists go about their research. Also, the chapter on media analysis did a great job of linking theory to practical discussions of the research process. And the chapter on focus groups does a great job of differentiating market research use of focus groups which is important because most students would probably only have exposure to focus groups in that context...The concluding chapter also did a great job of summarizing the steps of the research process, helpful hints, and the feminist perspective of the book.”
