Contemporary Feminist Research from Theory to Practice by Patricia Leavy and Anne Harris offers an engaging and inclusive perspective to feminist research. What makes this book unique is the balance between theory, method, and activism. The authors take you on a journey of feminist research from past implications to present day inferences in qualitative, quantitative and community based research. They expand upon theory, method and what happens after research is completed, bringing it full circle. Each chapter is filled with in depth, clear writing that engages the reader as well as various resources, discussion questions, and activities at the end of each chapter.
