This thought-provoking book explores the 'whats, ' 'whys, ' and 'hows' of integrating feminist theory and methods into applied research and evaluation practice. Illustrative cases drawn from U.S. and international studies address a range of social and health issues. The book provides an overview of feminist theory and research strategies as well as detailed discussions of how to use a feminist lens, practical steps and challenges in implementation, and what feminist methods contribute to research and evaluation projects. Reflections at the close of each section invite the reader to consider key.

Feminist theory : a reader

Kolmar, Wendy K.; Bartkowski, Frances (eds.). (4th ed., New York : McGraw-Hill Higher Education, c2013.)

Feminist Theory: A Reader represents the history, intellectual breadth, and diversity of feminist theory. The selections are organized into six historical periods from the 18th century to the late 2000s and include key feminist manifestos to help readers see the link between feminist theory and application. The collection presents feminist through from its inception as the province of women of different races, classes, nationalities, and sexualities in order to demonstrate the continuity in feminist theory discussions. A lexicon of the debates- clear, concise explanations of twelve key concepts that characterize the development of feminist thought since its inception- provides a vocabulary of important feminist theory terms and puts that vocabulary in context.

Handbook of feminist research : theory and praxis

Hesse-Biber, Sharlene Nagy (ed.). (2nd ed., Thousand Oaks : SAGE, c2012.)

HQ 1180 .H35 2012

This Handbook presents both a theoretical and practical approach to conducting social science research on, for, and about women. It develops an understanding of feminist research by introducing a range of feminist epistemologies, methodologies, and emergent methods that have had a significant impact on feminist research practice and women's studies scholarship. Contributors to the Second Edition continue to highlight the close link between feminist research and social change and transformation. The new edition expands the base of scholarship into new areas, with 12 entirely new chapters on topics such as the natural sciences, social work, the health sciences, and environmental studies. It extends discussion of the intersections of race, class, gender, and globalization, as well as transgender, transsexualism and the queering of gender identities. All 22 chapters retained from the first edition are updated with the most current scholarship, including a focus on the role that new technologies play in the feminist research process
