A Feminist Account of High-Risk Leisure Consumption
This thesis is a qualitative investigation into the high risk-taking experiences of women aerial performers. Using semi-structured interviews and a form of photo elicitation, the thesis examines the social, cultural and structural characteristics that influence and shape women's experiences of risk-taking. This will also highlight the additional ontological risk-taking that women manage on account of their gender.
