Description - Feminism and Discourse by Sue Wilkinson
Discourse analysis has become a popular approach to research across the social sciences, and a particularly important tool for feminist psychologists. This study examines a range of discourse analytical work in psychology from a feminist perspective. It constitutes a thorough critical evaluation of this approach for the feminist project of intellectual, social and political change. Researchers explore the benefits and contradictions of discourse analysis and consider its value for feminist psychology. The first part of the text illustrates the application of discourse analysis to four key topics of feminist concern: adolescent knowledge about menstruation, sexual harassment, gendered representations of childhood, and anorexia nervosa. The second part contains five assessments of the usefulness of discourse analysis - both as theory and as method - for feminists.
