I interviewed ten people of different ages, sex and race. Some of them where interviewed by phone others by email. My main objective was to ask them if they were a feminist. I had them categorize themselves from a list of four categories. I asked them a list of questions and their responses helped determine whether they fell into that category or not.
The four categories where active feminist or non-active feminist, not a feminist, but agree with some of the objectives of feminism or not a feminist and disagree with the objectives of feminism. I was somewhat surprised with how some of the people labeled themselves. I asked them ten questions after they categorized themselves. These questions were from 1 (strongly disagree) to 6 (strongly agree). Then each question was given a value then totaled up. If they were above 40, they fell into the feminist category; anyone who scored below 40 fell into a non-feminist category.

All the females, except one fell into the same category as what they had labeled themselves. Three out of the six women did not consider themselves a feminist, which surprised me because I thought they would all fall into the feminist category. It did not surprise me that the older group mostly fell into the feminist category because they had to deal with more of the discrimination than the younger generations have had to. Some of the older women did go into telling me stories of how they had fewer opportunities back when they were younger.

Her views when answering the questions fell into the feminist category. She is very driven about her career and is going into graduate school to get her doctorate degree in sports medicine. Even though she does not think she is a...
