Abstract

During the course of our research, we came across several methodological problems. We are not referring so much to the undeniable hermeneutic challenges of understanding and decodifying the women’s language and the way that they perceive and understand their world and their situation. The biggest challenge is, in fact, to find the right stance, not that of a mere impartial and omniscient observer, nor, on the other hand, that of participants who are excessively involved in the phenomena that they are trying to describe. This issue is worthy of considerable discussion before we go on to present our results.
