Description

The Politics and Practice of Feminist Research: A Sociology for the People

Dorothy E. Smith is a Canadian sociologist and professor Emerita who helped shape the fields of standpoint feminism and feminist sociology. She argued throughout the 1970s and 1980s, when the women's movement was predominantly focused around white and middle-class issues, that intersections of race and class should be accounted for to represent a more accurate and inclusive category of "woman". Her work has been widely taken up across the social sciences, including in sociology, gender studies, family studies, health, psychology, human services and education. She has been the recipient of numerous of distinguished teaching and research awards and her work is ranked among the most important in 20th and 21st century sociology.
