Amsler, Sarah; Motta, Sara C. – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we offer a critique of neoliberal power from the perspective of the gendered, sexualised, raced and classed politics of motherhood in English universities. By using dialogical auto-ethnographic methods to examine our own past experiences as full-time employed mother-academics, we demonstrate how feminist academic praxis can not only…

Etaugh, Claire; Worell, Judith – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2012
Salk and Hyde (2012) contend that, over the past two decades, genetic research has evolved from its earlier model of genetic determinism to one which recognizes the nuanced interplay between genes and the environment. They argue that modern genetics therefore is no longer antithetical to feminist perspectives in psychology. The authors do not…

Hextrum, Kirsten – Berkeley Review of Education, 2014
Today, women across race and class categories graduate high school and college at higher rates than men (U.S. Census Bureau, 2012).

Yet, despite educational gains, women remain materially and symbolically unequal, proving to be…

Where is the connection between feminism and service learning? In which ways can they profit from each other? How can service learning be practiced at a religious institution that is often skeptical of feminism to bring the movement to the student body? How might this create a more effective form of service? For the purpose of this article, the…

Holligan, Chris – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
Cultural reproduction is rarely, if ever, theorised through clandestine practices of sexual offending by teachers in the gendered hierarchies of state schools.

In 2008 EPAS Standards on "Engaging Diversity and Difference in Practice" (2.1.4) added intersectionality (a theory developed by feminist of color) as one aspect to understand diversity, difference, and power in social work curriculum.
