Guiding students step-by-step through the research process while simultaneously introducing a range of debates, challenges and tools that feminist scholars use, the second edition of this popular textbook provides a vital resource to those students and researchers approaching their studies from a feminist perspective. Interdisciplinary in its approach, the book covers everything from research design, analysis and presentation, to formulating research questions, data collection and publishing research. Offering the most comprehensive and practical guide to the subject available, the text is now also fully updated to take account of recent developments in the field, including participatory action research, new technologies and methods for working with big data and social media.

Doing Feminist Research is required reading for undergraduate and postgraduate courses taking a feminist approach to Social Science Methodology, Research Design and Methods. It is the ideal guide for all students and scholars carrying out feminist research, whether in the fields of International Relations, Political Science, Interdisciplinary International and Global Studies, Development Studies or Gender and Women’s Studies.
