Published

Conference Paper

Despite an increasing number of feminist studies in the area of women's health, feminist approaches have rarely been used in nursing research on the menopausal symptom experience of midlife women. The purpose of the article is to propose a feminist approach to such research on the basis of a literature review. First, diverse feminist perspectives and their commonalities are summarized. Then, the literature related to the menopausal symptom experience is critiqued from a feminist perspective. On the basis of the discussion, 5 principles are proposed for a feminist approach to research on menopausal symptom experience.
