Summary
This dissertation study utilized a mixed-method approach to explore the patterns of feminist identity development and relations to the women's movement in the lives of adult women and their impact on women's subjective well-being. Approximately 700 women participated in an on-line survey, which included the Feminist Identity Composite (Fischer et al., 2000), Scales of Psychological Well-Being (Ryff, 1989), Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener et al., 1985), and a wide range of demographic questions. Participants' ages ranged from 18 to 83 (mean of 40) with 89% White American and 92% heterosexual participants. Results of cluster analyses revealed three patterns in women's feminist identity development. On the bases of cluster profiles, five diverse women were selected for in-depth qualitative interviews. The qualitative interviews yielded the following names for the clusters: Women with Traditional Values (WTV), Women with Moderate Values (WMV), and Women with Feminist Values (WFV). Analyses of covariance showed that women's sense of well-being differed by cluster with women in the WFV cluster reporting higher sense of well-being on dimensions of autonomy, personal growth, purpose in life, and overall well-being than women in the other two clusters. The results indicated that women's cluster membership did not differ with age or ethnicity although clusters were composed of women with other differing demographic characteristics. Qualitative interviews provided women's reflection on meaning of the findings for their lives and problematized the results of the quantitative findings by reflecting complexity of women's lives and their relations to their gendered identities and the women's movement
