Editorial Reviews

"A splendid book which provides a clear and careful guide to doing and evaluating feminist research and highlights its crucially transformative role in the social sciences. It should be required reading not just for every social science - and of course feminist - methods course but for all researchers, reviewers and gatekeepers too." —Sandra Harding, UCLA"Methodologically diverse and theoretically rich, an important and accessible guide for doing feminist research that deserves to be read by scholars from all social scientific traditions." —J. Ann Tickner, University of Southern California"This timely, accessible and practical guide to doing feminist research will be welcomed by students and researchers across the social sciences." —Nira Yuval-Davis, University of East London, UK
