This thesis explores the impact of stigma on women in New Zealand living with HIV through the use of co-operative inquiry, an innovative, participatory, action-based and somewhat revolutionary, research method. Through the process of sharing experiences, reflection and discussion, participants were encouraged to learn to interpret meaning and gain a better understanding of their world. This process lead to personal transformations and consciousness-raising for all those who took part.
