2As many writers have made clear there is no homogenous feminist approach, political or academic (e.g. Banks 1981; Jaggar 1983; Walby 1986; Ramazanoglu 1989; May 1996). However, there are continuities across feminist approaches. For example, Reinharz (1992), when discussing feminist research methods, clearly asserts that there is no one way of doing feminist research and identifies core themes that are important to, or for, those who undertake research and define themselves as feminists. Core concerns might be documenting women's specific experiences (e.g. Spender 1988), or challenging gender-blind theorising and creating new visions (e.g. Gilligan 1982).
