Feminist Measures in Survey Research



March 2012 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book offers a new approach for doing quantitative feminist research, demonstrating how a feminist perspective can inform virtually every aspect of the research process, from survey design, to statistical modelling, to the theoretical frameworks used to interpret results.

Catherine E. Harnois makes feminist theory, particularly multiracial feminist theory, accessible and relevant to survey researchers. She assists students and researchers in incorporating these theories into survey design and analysis and shows how this can offer substantive insights into the social world that have been underutilized to date by survey researchers.

 
Chapter 1. Feminist Theory and Survey Research
 
Chapter 2. (Inter)disciplinarity in Feminist Survey Research
 
Chapter 3. Analytic Interventions of Multiracial Feminism: Measuring and Modeling Sexism with an Intersectional Approach
 
Chapter 4. Further Re-modeling with Multiracial Feminism: Highlighting interactive effects of race, ethnicity, age, and gender
 
Chapter 5. Complicating the General with Narratives of the Particular: Analyzing "feminism" with a multiracial feminist approach
 
Chapter 6. Multiracial Feminism and Survey Research: Re-thinking the "Impossibility of Coherence"

”The book speaks to readers in a number of social science disciplines. It will improve standard methods of survey research and provide feminist scholars with useful tools.”

Alyssa N. Zucker
The George Washington University

“This book makes important contributions to the study of intersectionality in the social sciences. It provides interesting and clear critiques of current survey instruments and analysis and demonstrates how alternative models might elucidate our understandings of the world.”

Celeste Montoya
University of Colorado, Boulder

”The author has created a book that is comprehensive in its scope, widely accessible and on the forefront of feminist research. Multiracial feminist theory has remained on the margins for too many, for far too long. This book brings multiracial feminism center stage by making it our starting point for doing research.”

Natalie J. Bourdon
Mercer University

“This book addresses a real gap in feminist methods literature.”

Jo Reger
Oakland University
