Abstract:The main paradigms of contemporary feminist educational research include meta analysis, text reconstruction and realistic criticism. Meta analysis involves the re-analysis and reflection of educational theories or principles that are highly recognized by mainstream culture. Text reconstruction mainly embodies educational thought and history, alongside there interpretation of female gender. Realistic criticism entails using feminism, especially from the perspective of gender, to examine gender differences, discrimination, survival and development. The exploration and accumulation of feminism in educational research methods is helpful to enrich perspective and theoretical systems, as well as promote the realization of gender equality in education.
