The purpose of this paper is to flourish the grounded theory (GT) methodology in qualitative research from the feminist viewpoint. Since the mid-1990s feminist research on grounded theory has been started and researchers have been using this approach for research based on practical experiences. The nursing researchers, for the first time, draw on feminist principles in grounded theory for the better serving of the interests of women in healthcare. Feminist grounded theory (FGT) is the evolved form of the original grounded theory of Glaser and Strauss. Feminist research is a related area of social research and always thinks about the welfare of the women, especially those who are under-estimated in the male-dominated society. In every country, some professions, such as nursing, home economics, nutrition, etc. are women dominated. Feminist grounded theory methodology research is well-fitted in these areas. In the 21st century, feminist grounded theory is appropriate, effective, and highly resourceful. In the past, women’s voices and views are frequently ignored in many cases, such as in academics and policy making. At present, feminist research is a growing field in the research arena that creates concerns about the rights of women and provides knowledge to bring them to light. This study exercises feminism and the structure of the feminist nature of the grounded theory to change the subordination of women and reduce social inequality in all stages. This paper aims to discuss and analyze feminist epistemologies and to highlight the necessity of feminist grounded theory in society.
