Feminist methodologies

Abstract

It is difficult to under-estimate the influence of feminist theory on contemporary qualitative research methods. That is, before feminism’s influence, research was something carried out by men who studied men and male public lives. Men were unmarked and normative, both the ground on which research (and life) rested and the model on which others should base themselves. This chapter outlines a brief history of feminist thought and its influence on qualitative research methods, discusses feminist research methods including epistemologies and methodologies, and methods for practising feminist research methods.
