In this article Dr Adrian Howe discusses the usefulness of feminist approaches to research in the fields of criminology and criminal justice. She describes how standard positivist methodologies as well as newly emergent poststructuralist approaches, such as Foucauldian methods, are bringing much needed new perspectives to criminological issues.
