Gendered innovations in the social sciences [Special issue], Women’s Studies International Forum,

Edited by Fiona Jenkins, Helen Keane and Claire Donovan

 

This special issue of Women's Studies International Forum presents evidence that feminist approaches and gendered analysis are marginalised to a greater or lesser extent across most of the range of social science disciplines. Since the social sciences are concerned with the study of human society and social relationships, this leads to an impoverished and blinkered understanding of the social world within mainstream social science, and a consequent diminution of the value of feminist scholarship. Moreover, this marginalisation of feminist and gender scholarship has as one further consequence the reduction of opportunities for women's academic career progression in a world where citation counts matter.
