This research was ini­ti­at­ed under the hypoth­e­sis that under­ly­ing dis­crep­an­cies might reveal a dif­fer­ent nar­ra­tive for female par­tic­i­pants, par­tic­u­lar­ly in how they access and engage with DIY projects.

The research objec­tives of this study are:

  • Inves­ti­gate the vari­a­tion in DIY expe­ri­ences among women across dif­fer­ent demographics
  • Explore wom­en’s DIY pro­gres­sion, chal­lenges faced, and rec­om­men­da­tions for new DIYers
  • Iden­ti­fy com­mon­ly uti­lized resources and plan­ning behav­iors among DIYers
