Abstract and Keywords

This article explores the various methods and methodologies used by feminist scholars for studying gender and politics, focusing on the methodological demands of the study of gender and politics and how feminist scholars met these demands. It introduces feminist methodological reflection and locates the methodologies and methods of the study of gender and politics within the context of the research questions they can address. This is followed by a section on the influences of how people understand feminist methodology as a field and the enumeration of three ways of thinking about feminist research. The article concludes with a discussion on several methods feminists use and examples of them.
