Podcast: What does feminist research really look like?

admin Podcast


Welcome to the first in G&D’s new series of podcasts!

In this podcast Liz Cooke, assistant editor of Gender & Development, speaks to three contributors to the November 2019 issue of G&D, which focuses on the challenges of putting a feminist research agenda into practice.

Our contributors talk to us about their research, undertaken in very different contexts. Michelle Lokot tells us about her research with Syrian refugees, Mirna Guha discusses researching sex work in Eastern India, and Xian Warner shares ideas on getting quantitative research on Violence against Women and Girls into the hands of policy makers.

You can read their journal articles here:

Michelle: The space between us: feminist values and humanitarian power dynamics in research with refugees
Mirna: ‘Do you really want to hear about my life?’: doing ‘feminist research’ with women in sex work in Eastern India
Xian: Making feminism count: integrating feminist research principles in large-scale quantitative research on violence against women and girls
