In Hong Kong, what studies have been done on anorexia nervosa (AN)? How can nurses make a significant contribution to the research on AN? Florence Nightingale was an influential pioneer who brought a feminist perspective to the nursing profession. To follow in her footsteps, I-a nurse educator-will make a case for feminist research in nursing and AN in this chapter. A background of AN and a review of local studies on AN are presented first. In the second part, a feminist approach to nursing research is introduced. To conclude, ethical considerations and implications for nursing research in the near future are discussed.
