Focus on femininity
Jim McCourt meets Dr Precilla Choi to explore gender and the body.
AS both a Chartered Health Psychologist and an accredited sports and exercise scientist, Precilla Choi is renowned for her feminist research on women’s health and exercise. Feminism is crucial to her work. ‘By being a feminist researcher, I want to show where injustices are and how they come about, whether through misogynous practices or conforming with a patriarchal way of doing things, and then somehow be able to take what I have shown and for it to be used by practitioners or policy makers, to turn things around and make them more just.’ This approach was evident throughout our meeting at Keele University, where we discussed her current projects.
