Quantitative Methods and Gender Inequalities Jacqueline Scott University of Cambridge

Slide 2

Outline Consider whether early women's activist restriction to quantitative research bodes well Introduce the ESRC Research Priority Network on Gender Inequalities (GeNet) as a model Discuss the various techniques of GeNet against a 'fit for reason' evaluative system Consider challenges postured by comprehension intersectionalities in sexual orientation look into Identify how subjective strategies used to advise and hone the ways quantitative scientists include

Slide 3

Feminism 1970s/1980s Emphasis on making ladies noticeable in sociologies and 'giving voice' Concern about "objectivity" & "indifferent" learning being very one-sided Challenge to essentialist contentions about "normal" contrasts amongst men and ladies Championing of subjective over quantitative
