Title: Knowledge and skills in feminist research, the experience of conducting research on work-related violence against women working as street prostitutes
Authors: Cusitar, Ena Leanne
Issue Date: 1-Aug-1997
Abstract: This report describes a practicum which was designed to increase knowledge of issues related to prostitution and work-related violence against women working as street prostitutes, as well as to increase knowledge and skills in doing feminist research. The following activities were completed: (1) a review of the literature on prostitution and violence against women working as prostitutes; (2) a review of the literature on the feminist alternative-end paradigm research approaches as well as an examination of the similarities and differences between research conducted at different points on the paradigm continuum between the dominant end and the alternative end, and the evaluation of the appropriateness of a feminist alternative-end research approach to research in the area of work-related violence against women working as street prostitutes; (3) involvement in all aspects of the research project itself from research design, selection of methods, preparation of the cross-sectional survey, conducting cross-sectional interviews, semi-structured audio-taped interviews, analysis of the results and recommendations; (4) use of a diary throughout the research process to increase the likelihood that the acquisition and integration of knowledge and skills in feminist research was done more consciously.
