Abstract and Keywords

This chapter illuminates the evolution of feminist perspectives across the past several decades. We discuss the definition of feminist research and introduce the specific goals of feminist praxis, including how feminist researchers aim to unearth subjugated knowledge and empower underprivileged groups. We examine how feminist researchers employ multimethod and mixed methods research designs to address complex research questions that foster and develop a nuanced understanding of the diversity of lived experiences. The chapter provides in-depth case studies from a range of feminist perspectives that use multimethod and mixed methods feminist research designs.

Keywords: feminist theory, feminist research, subjugated knowledge, lived experience, mixed methods, multimethods, reflexivity, intersectionality
