Regeneration & Diversity
The feminist theory strives to represent human diversity. By respecting the diversity of the environment, and taking them into account, we assert that consciousness - raising is a legitimate way of seeing and is therefore a methodological tool as well.
"Feminists affirm the belief that diversified samples or case studies improve research quality by allowing more precise conceptualization.
How much of the diversified world of women should be included in a particular research project? When is a group actually diverse? Do members of different subgroups speak only for themselves? Do Western feminists have a right to criticize or must they accept culturally rooted practices in other cultures that seem detrimental to women, as discussed in the chapter on cross-cultural research?"
