/ Dissertation Research - Questionnaire for Women - Now With Link
I have been granted permission from UKC (1/2/13), this questionnaire is for women only and will take no longer than 5 minutes, this is much appreciated!
Gender inequality ? I hope you've done a questionnaire for man blokes too then ? To equalise it ? No ? thats a bit sexist is it not ?
Typical male climbers attitude ....
And I'm telling .
I've just filled it in for you. I think maybe if you could define exactly what you mean by 'gender inequality' it would help - do you mean in terms of the number of women who climb, the attitudes of other climbers (male/female) towards women who climb, the fact that men maybe climb harder grades than women...?
Hello Matty I apologise , I was joshing I didn't mean to belittle any of your research or work & genuinely believe it is no doubt worthy of further works & research . Best of luck with it too . That said I believe these things can work both ways too . Please try not to take my comments personally though , no upset meant .
Also, Leon, No offense taken, its all good! :)
One of the questions was tricky to answer, so I added an explanation. I do think that there is some inequality still in climbing, but it's a whole lot better than in other sports and wider society as a whole. Another option to that question might have made it an even better survey?
The responses have been great so far, thanks to everyone who has filled out the questionnaire!
Just done it, there is little detail you can gain from the answers though, more questions required in order to get more qualitative data, as if people do not feel equal, there is no opportunity for them to say why, and these reasons could be very different.
Also what inequality are you refering to? Ability inequality, access inequality, monetary inequality in going climbing, time inequality as females stay at home more?
Just trying to point out that there are many inequalities that effect whether females will climb and the questionnaire is not detailed enough to consider which are important.
Having said that i think its a potentially interesting area of study and these comments are not meant to be offensive just constructive.
I'm trying to answer this survey but finding a lot of questions difficult. On the grade question I only climb HVS-E2 normally on trad but consistently climb harder than 6b+ on sport so which should I answer? Also on who got me into rock climbing, my parents did and one is male and the other female, so which answer should I pick? On the last question I do feel equal to the males I climb with in terms of ability but in other ways no so which should I go for there? I think the options are too black and white when the questions aren't that simple.
