Naples draws on different research topics, such as welfare, poverty, sexual identity, and sexual abuse, to illustrate some of the most salient dilemmas of feminist research: the debate over objectivity, the paradox of discourse, the dilemma of standpoint, and the challenges of activist research. By linking important feminist theoretical debates with case studies, Naples illustrates the strategies she has developed for resolving the challenges posed be postmodern, Third World, postcolonial, and queer studies.
