    The Virtuous Organization.Michael D. Smith - 1982 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 7 (1):35-42.

  5. Enhancing the Quality of Survey Data on Violence Against Women:: A Feminist Approach.Michael D. Smith - 1994 - Gender and Society 8 (1):109-127.
    A major methodological problem in victimization surveys on physical and sexual violence against women is the underreporting of violence. The first part of this article makes a case for 6 feminist strategies for improving the accuracy of self-report data on victimization within a mainstream survey research framework. The second part of the article is a presentation of data from a survey of Toronto women that is designed to show the efficacy of these feminist strategies.
