How can multiracial feminism inform social science survey research? What would it mean, in practical terms, to bring an “intersectional” approach to survey design and statistical analysis? How might such an approach change our understanding of the social world? Feminist Measures in Survey Research offers a new approach for bridging feminist theory and quantitative social science research. Catherine E. Harnois demonstrates how a multiracial feminist perspective can inform virtually every aspect of the research process, from survey design and statistical modeling to the frameworks used to interpret the results. Harnois argues for an interdisciplinary approach to social research, rooted in multiracial feminist theorizing. Such an approach, she suggests, enables a critical reexamination of the assumptions embedded in everyday research practices. It also provides a new and important framework for critiquing and producing quality survey research.

”The book speaks to readers in a number of social science disciplines. It will improve standard methods of survey research and provide feminist scholars with useful tools.”

Alyssa N. Zucker

The George Washington University

“This book makes important contributions to the study of intersectionality in the social sciences. It provides interesting and clear critiques of current survey instruments and analysis and demonstrates how alternative models might elucidate our understandings of the world.”

Celeste Montoya

University of Colorado, Boulder

”The author has created a book that is comprehensive in its scope, widely accessible and on the forefront of feminist research. Multiracial feminist theory has remained on the margins for too many, for far too long. This book brings multiracial feminism center stage by making it our starting point for doing research.”

Natalie J. Bourdon

Mercer University

“This book addresses a real gap in feminist methods literature.”
