The research bringing a feminist approach to marketing

In episode five, Dr Lorna Stevens discusses her research on marketing and feminism, in light of the publication of her new book The Routledge Companion to Marketing and Feminism. She reflects on how feminism has changed in the last twenty years, and generated new conversations around intersectionality, ecofeminism, digital feminism and reflects on how social media has brought feminism into the mainstream again, galvanising people to get out into the streets and protest for their rights for the first time in decades.


Our research is making a positive difference in the lives of people around the world.
