Given that Participatory Action Research (PAR) and Feminisms (Fem) share "process" as one of the fundamental principles in their philosophy and practice, we can only set the preliminary goal and objectives of the PARticipatory FEMinism Web Site (PARFem).

3.An electronic Bibliographic list, "Selected Writings on Feminisms and Action Research," compiled by Monica Ruiz-Casares (You may add/update any existing reference).

4.A video tape,"Feminisms and the Academy - Going Out of Business," by Patricia Maguire.

  1. Another Case Study, A video tape, "The Logic and Practice of the Participatory Action Research Paradigm," by Yoland Wadsworth.
