    How can we reimagine the relationship between academia and activism to provide new opportunities for social change?

    Based on an ethnography with an anti-violence feminist collective, this vibrant and vital book develops an interdisciplinary approach to activism and activist research, helping us reimagine the role of scholarship in the fight against social inequality.

    With its reflections on novel tools that can be utilised in the fight for social justice, this book will be a valuable resource for academics in critical management studies, sociology, gender studies, and social work as well as practitioners and policy makers across the social services sector.

    Ruth Weatherall is Lecturer in Not-for-Profit and Social Enterprise Management at University of Technology Sydney. Her research uses feminist and queer perspectives, and is concerned with how social justice, particularly related to gender inequality, is achieved in and through not-for-profit organisations.
