A Feminist Social Psychological Study Utilizing Theatre of the Oppressed Methods to Explore Issues of Women’s Voices
This research project looked at the metaphorical conception of Voice in undergraduate women by using Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) methods. The project took place over a five-week period during the Spring of 2003. Participants took part in four weekly meetings and two 4-hour workshops on the final weekend of the project. During the project, various resources on feminism, Voice, and TO were read and discussed, and several writing assignments were given. The culmination of the project involved working on a TO Forum Theatre piece based upon the issues brought up in the readings and discussions. The project shows that Voice is a valuable research topic for Social Psychologists and demonstrates how TO methods can be used to gather qualitative narrative feminist data.
