To have a better understanding, the study will look into barriers facing women when bidding for the office of the Prime Minister, why they face the barriers, how the barriers impact them, the specific barriers and finally the pattern adopted by these barriers (Payne, & Nassar, 2015).

The clear principles of the research model qualifies it as the best method for our study; we are seeking to understand the underlying reasons, opinions and motivations as to why women are perceived to face barriers in their political life (Seidman, 2013). Use of interviews is the best, because they will assist the study in recording attitudes, behaviors and feelings while at the same time encouraging people to broaden their responses and in the process gaining more helpful information. Qualitative methods will assist the study to build a picture why people behave in a certain way, particularly towards women taking part in politics (Maxwell, 2012).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
