Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have a favour to ask of any women on here, or any women you know in the Navy.

    For my A level coursework I need to conduct a survey of navy personnel, in particular women, is there anyone on here that would be willing to answer a questionnaire, or is there anyone you know, who would?

    The questionnaire will be sent by me via Private Message and so should the responses.

    Thanks again.
  2. sounds ominous
  3. You might get a better response if you posted your 'questionnaire in open forum first, at the moment it sounds as if you are an undercover perv so don't hold your breath for pm's
  4. Stick the questionairre up so that we can take a look at it.
  5. lads- my thoughts exactly - charlzo- happy to oblige - but lets see it first mate xx

  12. Questionnaire – Women in the Royal Navy

    Answer all questions as fully and honestly as possible, if you have any queries regarding the meaning of a question, please feel free to e-mail me and ask. All information will be kept confidential.

    1) What is your current rank within the Royal Navy?

    2) In your opinion are there more female or male employees in the Navy?

    3) How many other females do you come into contact with in your role?

    4) Are any of your superiors female?

    5) If so how many?

    6) What is the highest ranking female you have met?

    Thank you, for your time. Charzlo.
  13. Charzlo,

    I take it this is for the Methods component or that you have at least had some lessons in Methods.

    It's not clear from your questionairre whether you are looking for quanitative or qualitative data but whatever the case ditch question two as it is nonsensical.

    If you wish to elicit opinions or experiences formulate open-ended questions which enable the repsondent to tell you what they think, what their experiences are or have been, etc.

    I would at least ask the repsondent whether she is shore or ship based and what her specialism is which might throw up some interesting discussion points for you. When you do write your findings up in terms of Vertical and Horizontal analyses. (Imagine a cross. The vertical axis shows rank disribution, for example. The horizonatl axis will show up clusters or types of tasks by gender, etc. So you might find that there are a disproportionate number of women in certain posts and next to no women in others such as Submariner, Pilot, Ships Diver, etc. These are just ideas though).

    Just in case you're wondering about the soundness of the advice I have taught Sociololgy at AS/A2 and Degree level. My own interests are in Ethnomethodology(Harold Garfinkel) and Conversation Analysis (Harvey Sacks), which is nothing like what your text books will say it is. Good luck with your research :thumright:
  14. urm----- yeah-- ok -- in english??
  15. Charlzo,
    I've added a couple of possibilities concerning Vertical and Horizontal analysis for you in my earlier post.

    Stand by for lewd remarks :dwarf: :dwarf: :dwarf:

    Lewd remark
  18. Brazen, You just know one of the lads was going to go "Can I give her some Vertical and Horizontal analysis, Harry?" lol :)
  19. I know-- but rant coming on here --------------------
    I was in the first bunch of wrens to sea--- and i worked bloody hard to get the respect and prove i could do the job as a dabber.
    I am sick and tired of explaining myself over and over as to why - i did it because i wanted to - not to prove a point, etc- but because i wanted to -- and then i get grief for doing it.
    on here i have been accused of being a walt, an attention seeker, a troll (??)
    and im sick of it!! then i get daft questionaires- ARGH!!!!!!
    sorry but enough is enough - i did my time and loved it - if i didnt have kids id still be there.

    will get a taxi for 1 now ............................
  20. It's always harder for the trailblazer, Brazen. You may have joined just for you but your batch going to sea has changed the Andrew forever. Give it another fifty years and people will be wondering what all the fuss was about :)

    Don't forget it's because of women like yourself that young women feel they can now go for a career in the RN and Charzlo may well be one of them. As for the questionairre she has probably been asked to do a research piece on gender and employment or some such. In terms of the analyses I have suggested she could probably find the rank and job distribution results from MOD which would satisfy the more quantitative (number crunching) element of the research. Your experiences would greatly assist her qualitative analysis especially in terms of 'this is what the Andrew says it is like, this is how women in fact experience it'. In other words, you could be a great help to young woman about to start out. :)
