Keywords: feminist research methodology, ethical considerations

Abstract

Conducting qualitative research using a feminist research methodology requires a high level of personal ethical commitment from the re­searchers, particularly regarding the time required to establish and maintain social networks between the researchers and the researched. This paper raises questions to the feasibility of researchers adhering to those ideals for each participant when conducting large qualitative studies. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0503392
