Continuing in the vein of eschewing misconceptions of feminism:
Mindy Erchull and Miriam Liss, two researchers at the University of Mary Washington, are looking for feminist mothers to participate in a study that they are conducting.
Despite much internet discussion and many books written about the potential relationship between feminism and mothering, there is surprisingly little research about people’s actual attitudes and beliefs about the relationship between feminism and motherhood.
Given this, they are trying to collect data from feminists, non-feminists, mothers, and non-mothers to understand their beliefs so that we can clear up some of the potential misconceptions out there.
If you are a feminist and/or a mother and you would like to participate in this study, please click here. The study is anonymous, but you will need to provide an e-mail address in order to participate. [Source]
A long overdue and much anticipated piece of research that I shall be maintaining a beady eye on the look out for once published.
