Made in Peterborough - Curriculum to Grow the Leadership of Women in Politics
Women in Canada are missing from all levels of politics and there has been a painstakingly slow increase in the number of women involved. Women in Politics workshops have been run throughout Ontario and Canada as a whole. This project looks at Peterborough, Ontario and the opportunity for the YWCA of the area to host such workshops. It was found that workshops about women in politics are effective when the right curriculum is used and have an impact on the women who attend. It is recommended that the YWCA begin to increase the frequency with which these workshops are offered as well as tailoring each workshop to a specific interest, increasing overall effectiveness and impact and in turn increasing participation of women in politics in the Peterborough Region., By Rachel Arseneault and Leah Fearman, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: YWCA Peterborough; Supervising Professor: Paul Schaffer; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: John Marris, IDST 4220Y - Assessment of Development Projects

Why She Cycles: Building the Case for Community Bike Repair and Bike Education
By Olivia Austin & Melanie Lusted, Completed for: B!KE; Supervising Professor: Carmen Teeple Hopkins; Trent Community Research Centre, WMST 3031H - Doing Feminist Research: Making Social Change, The aim of this project was to learn more about the link between women’s knowledge of bicycle mechanics/repair skills and women’s usage of bicycles. The methods used were a literature review, survey analysis and conducting interviews. In the literature, a gap in cycling habits has been noted between women and men cyclists, with men riding significantly more than women. As well, there is little known about the link between knowledge of bicycle mechanics/repair skills and bike usage. We cannot conclude that there is a relationship between knowledge of bicycle mechanics/repair skills and usage. We found, however, that there were factors that contributed to usage including: purpose(s) for cycling, environmental factors and personal factors, all of which intertwined with social factors such as gender, class and cycling culture. In this report, we have included the literature review, survey analysis and a final interview analysis.
