This is an important and timely text that provides a unique overview of contemporary quantitative approaches to gender research. The contributors are internationally recognised researchers from the UK, USA and Sweden who occupy a range of disciplinary locations, including historical demography, sociology and policy studies. Their research includes explorations of heterosexual and same sex violence, media responses to feminist research, data sources for the study of equalities, approaches for analysing global and local demographic change and intersectional concerns in respect of work and employment.

Through detailed, sophisticated and thoughtful considerations of the place of quantification within gender studies, and the place of feminist approaches to quantification, each contributor overturns the stereotype that quantitative research is antithetical to feminism by demonstrating its importance for challenging continuing global inequalities associated with gendered outcomes. An introductory chapter illustrates the significance of geography and discipline in the take-up of methodological preferences.

Feminism Counts: Quantitative Methods and Researching Gender makes an important contribution to the ways in which feminists respond to contemporary methodological and interdisciplinary challenges, and is essential reading for all research students in gender studies.

This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Social Research Methodology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The seven papers that make up the book cover a wide range of the challenges faced in quantitative feminist academia. Together they successfully argue that quantitative and qualitative methods do not need to be at the opposing ends, but can complement each other in search for new approaches to feminist research.'
-Linda Wijlaars, London, in Significance Feb 2012

'...several of these essays will be of great interest to GAD [gender and development] researchers and practitioners.'
-Gwendolyn Beetham in Gender & Development, vol 20, no 2
