This story is mine and this chapter reflects my perspective regarding the origins,
accomplishments, and prospects for feminist research about leisure, women, and
gender. Every feminist leisure scholar has a somewhat different story and would

century, ...

enable them to 'resist oppression in all aspects of their lives' (Henderson et al.,
1996, p. 8). On the other ...

and in their leisure. Despite this general attitude, however, gender issues have
not been resolved in all aspects of everyday life. Recreation professionals must
