Recreational Pole Dancing

Thursday 12 November 2015

SIRC Research Fellow, Dr Kerry Griffiths, has spent five years researching the phenomenon of pole dancing as an increasingly popular fitness and leisure activity for women. Kerry's new book Femininity, Feminism and Recreational Pole Dancing is due to be published by Routledge in December 2015.

Her book is based on empirical research conducted for her PhD and uncovers the stories and experiences of the women who participate in these classes, and examines what the mainstreaming of this type of sexualised dance means for the women who practice it.

Listen to Kerry's interview with BBC Radio Sheffield (skip to 1 hour 9 minutes).
