Description

The purpose of this research project is to discover if students at Minnesota State University, Mankato who do not identify as feminists hold feminist values. The researchers are aware of the negative stigma associated with feminism and think that these stereotypes draw students away from feminism. Data will be collected through anonymous surveys distributed in Minnesota State classrooms. The survey will ask questions in a Likert scale fashion regarding students’ identification and agreement or disagreement with feminist values. While constructing the survey, researchers referenced scholarly journals written about liberal feminism and knowledge they learned in Gender and Women’s Studies courses at Minnesota State. Results of the research have yet to be made because the project is still in progress. Conclusions will be made through the data by comparing the students’ self-identification of feminism to their agreement or disagreement with feminist values indicated by their responses to the survey questions.
