Chapter 8: The TCR perspective of gender: moving from critical theory to an activism-praxis orientation

Laurel Steinfield, Jon Littlefield, Wendy Hein, Catherine A. Coleman and Linda Tuncay Zayer


Applying a transformative consumer research (TCR) perspective urges scholars to adopt a critical praxis. In this chapter we explore what a TCR approach entails and how the proposed Transformative Gender Justice Framework is well suited to help practitioners and scholars address gender-based injustices. We highlight topics in marketing and consumer behavior studies within TCR that might benefit from the addition of a gender focus, and research on gender outside of TCR that might gain from the integration of a transformational perspective. We conclude by reflecting on the activism and praxis orientations that this integration could help stimulate both outside and within academia.
