Quadrant Behavior Theory

Edging the Center the Potential for Change and Inclusion

Cathy L. Royal

Testimony, personal experience is such fertile ground for the production of libratory feminist theory—When our lived experience of theorizing is fundamentally linked to processes of self-recovery, of collective liberation, no gap exists between theory and practice. Theory emerges from … efforts to make sense of everyday life experiences, efforts to critically intervene in my life and the lives of others. Personal because it usually forms the base of our theory making. While we work to resolve those issues that are most pressing we engage in a critical process of theorizing that enables and empowers.
