Intersectionality Theory in Research with the Fathers of Children with the Label of Autism
Research with fathers of children with the label of autism has not reflected diversity amongst fathers, families and children, nor how societal changes have shaped fatherhood and fathering.
Research with fathers of children with the label of autism can move beyond essentialism by considering the nature of power and oppression, and the contextual and individual factors which shape male parenting and the relationships between fathers and children.
Intersectionality is a feminist theory which can help to recognise these complexities and their impact on social identities, values and practices in shifting times and locations.
