Abstract

Feminist methodology has influenced the way in which we interpret the narratives of women’s lived experiences. Drawing on these influences, this paper will explore the ways in which women construct, perform and negotiate
their gendered identities through the event of narration as they recall their experiences of global travel. Continuing to discuss feminist perspectives, this paper will then engage with the complexities of the research process to question whether collective interpretation is the most effective way to analyse women’s narratives in future research.
