This symposium seeks to highlight the value and importance of feminist thinking to the field of sociology. Organised by and for PGRs, the aim is to bring together UK-based PGRs involved in or who are interested in feminist perspectives.

Feminist researchers do not prescribe any single research method; they are united in the need to challenge traditional approaches and minimise the harms of research. Traditionally feminist perspectives focused on the inclusion or women and improving women’s status in the world, however, it is now widely accepted that key to feminist inquiry is the inclusion of marginalised groups more broadly. Feminist inquiry has largely modified existing research methods, as opposed to inventing new methods, however feminist have produced a distinctive body of writing about research epistemology and methods. This symposium aims to showcase the diversity of feminist perspectives and the increasing importance of this perspective to the field of sociology.
