Girls just want to have fun (too): Complicating the study of femininity and women's leisure
Sociology is the study of society. However, not all aspects of society get the same scholarly attention by academics. Throughout my research program, I have highlighted some of the lesser-covered areas of society, like feminine leisure seen in activities such as quilting, knitting, and membership in the Red Hat Society. In this article, I discuss how the development of sociology as a discipline has focused on public matters in society like the economy, leaving non-economic or private activities with less attention. My research on women's feminine leisure from a third-wave feminism perspective importantly addresses a gap in the discipline.
