Abstract

This theoretic article examines the potential for different types of nursing research to reinforce or undermine gender categories that historically have served to limit some women and marginalize others. Feminist research that gathers or analyzes information in the form of a male/female or man/woman dichotomy risks reproducing social relations damaging to women. Other approaches to dispersing or deconstructing gender dichotomies are discussed, and a series of questions about feminist nursing research is raised.
