Condition: Very Good. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.

From the cover: “Political and academic interest in women’s lives and experiences has grown enormously in recent years. Women’s Studies is a rapidly expanding field with the number of courses available increasing. This interest and growth reflects the increasing importance of debates within feminism, and acknowledges the influence feminist research has had on society. Researching Women’s Lives from a Feminist Perspective focuses on some of the practical issues involved in undertaking research from a feminist perspective. It draws on the experience of well-known feminist researchers who use their studies on such topics as employment, violence, sexual abuse, motherhood, sexuality, young women’s lives and political activity in the past, in order to offer the insights of the insider as to how research proceeds, its difficulties and compensations. In so doing, the essays draw attention to how variables such as ‘race’, age and sexuality can affect the research process.
