The power and promise of feminist research in environmental education
I have been arguing for recognition of the absence and need for inclusion of women's perspectives in environmental education research and pedagogy for some time (see, for example, Greenan Gough 1993, Gough 1987b, 1999). In this paper I explore the related issue of the potential of adopting feminist research methods and methodologies in environmental education research. This exploration includes a discussion of the importance of developing a feminist perspective, the characteristics of feminist educational research, and a review of feminist research in environmental education. The paper concludes with a discussion of feminist poststructuralist research as a powerful and promising approach for future research in environmental education.
