Abstract:

"How likely is feminist research to promote change in society? Are some research methods more successful at promoting change than others? Contributors to this volume discuss principles of feminist inquiry, providing examples from their own experience and evaluating research practices for their potential to promote social change. These twelve explorations cover methodologies including ethnographic study, in-depth interviewing, naming, and going public. Also explored are consultative relationships between academic researchers and activist organizations, participatory and advocacy research processes, and coalition building"--Book jacket.
