Do you want to talk about it?
I am a female PhD student at London Metropolitan University researching women’s experiences of the way men respond to them in public, and particularly how they feel about this.
I am looking for women who have anything to say about this, no matter how big or small, to have a short 1/.2 hr – 1 hour chat with me. If you want to, you’ll also be given a research notebook to record your experiences over the next few weeks. If you agree we will then meet up again to discuss what you found and anything else you want to add about your encounters with men in public.
I believe the great problems are in the streets, and need your voice to understand the meanings you make of everyday experience.
If you are at all interested please get in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you more details to help you make your decision about whether you want to participate.
I am based in London and can travel to anywhere which is approximately an hour or so outside of the capital.
This study is for women only.
