Based on the author's experience with what she calls analysis block, Feminist Fieldwork Analysis offers advice for researchers who want to translate a feminist sensibility into qualitative analysis. Each chapter provides a guiding feminist principle; studies that show the principle in action; and analytic questions that researchers can keep in mind in the field or at the desk. These widely applicable principles (which correspond with chapter titles) include: Talk is Action, Similarities Can be Deceiving, Sexism Can be Anywhere, The Personal is Political, and Everything is More than One Thing. The author has chosen engaging examples to illustrate the principles, and useful questions to bring to any feminist qualitative project. The final chapter calls on feminist researchers to apply the principles and findings of feminist research in their everyday lives, including the groups and organizations of which they are a part.

Very "wordy" and too difficult to follow

A very insightful and easy to grasp application of feminist methodology to research. The author deals with major issues in feminist research, such as power and authority, giving voice and reflexivity. A useful guide to any student that is going to engage in qualitative research
