Intercultural Perspectives

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Although feminism is considered a western construct and social movement, First Nation peoples traditionally supported clearly defined and complimentary roles for men and women. The cultural dimension of ethical nursing practice and the way in which feminist perspectives and strategies interface with this dimension are the focus of this chapter. The following themes are explored: Pre-colonisation and gender roles; We-dentity and ethical decision-making; Māori culture, ethics and research. These themes provide an opportunity to engage with a new taken-for-grantedness that considers treating people regardful of their differences as opposed to being regardless of the cultural context in which we all live.
