Oracle or Monacle: Research Concerning Attitudes Toward Feminism.
Prescott, Suzanne; Schmid, Margaret
Both popular studies and more serious empirical studies of attitudes toward feminism are reviewed beginning with Clifford Kirkpatrick's early empirical work and including the more recent empirical studies completed since 1970. The review examines the contents of items used to measure feminism, and the methodology and sampling used in studies, as well as the comparability of the studies' findings. Suggestions are offered for improvements in future research, including the need for sampling more representative of the range of experiences that relate to women's issues and studies designed to resolve current inconsistencies in findings.
