Telling It All : A Story of Women's Social Capital Using a Mixed Methods Approach
Hodgkin, Suzanne
Journal of Mixed Methods Research, v2 n4 p296-316 2008
The aim of this article is to demonstrate how quantitative and qualitative methods can be us together in feminist research. Despite an increasing number of texts and journal articles detailing mixed methods research, there are relatively few published reports of its use in feminist study. This article draws on a study conducted in regional Australia, exploring gender a social capital. Through the analysis and interpretation of data derived from a large survey and in-depth interviewing, the author will demonstrate the power of the mixed methods approach to highlight gender inequality. Despite past reluctance of feminists to embrace quantitative methods, the big picture accompanied by the personal story can bring both depth and texture a study. (Contains 2 tables.)
