One size doesn't fit all: The meanings of women's leisure

Author(s): Henderson KA

Abstract

Researchers who study women's leisure in the 1990s are moving into a discourse about the inability and inadequacy of determining that leisure is the same for all women or that “one leisure size fits all.” The purpose of this paper is to extend an integrative review undertaken in 1990 to ascertain what we know about women's leisure in 1996. An integrative review was the strategy for reviewing research that focused on inferring generalizations about substantive issues from a set of studies directly bearing on these issues. The analyses resulted in three themes grounded in the literature of the past six years along with guiding hypotheses developed within each theme. The “megathemes” included gender, continua of meanings, and diversity
