Counting for women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Despite their limitations, quantitative methods have an important role in feminist geographic research. As discussed in this essay, quantitative methods can contribute by describing and analyzing the broad contours of difference, by providing a basis for informed policy making and progressive political change, by identifying people and places for in-depth study, and by situating qualitative research in a broader context. At the same time, feminist insights can enhance quantitative analysis. Collaboration between quantitative and qualitative researchers is essential. Key Words: Feminist geography, quantitative methods.
