"Fresh, original, and brings together in one place a set of authors who are very important to the field." -- Mary Margaret Fonow, coeditor of Beyond Methodology: Feminist Scholarship as Lived Research

How likely is feminist research to promote change in society? Are some research methods more successful at bringing about 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. The twelve chapters 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.
