In this article, I try to discuss feminist methodology in reference to my field experiences during an
ethnographic research on tailors. In the study, I investigated women’s experiences in a tailor shop, as
an example of semi-public sphere, in Bursa. In this article, firstly, I explain my questionings on my
research’s methodological position concerning feminist methodology. Then, I continue with a discussion
about researcher-participant relationship based upon my field experiences and questions that I
encountered in the writing process. I would like to make a contribution on both discussions of feminist
methodology and studies that pay attention to the voice of the researcher.

Feminist methodology, field experiences, ethnographic research, researcher-participant
relationship, qualitative data analysis.
