Abstract

Presents the findings of a study of female hospital cleaners in Sweden. Uses participatory research i.e. discussion and analysis of issues in groups to show how potential is often under utilized within such teams. Outlines the strengths which exist in subordinate groups in spite of structural obstacles. Focuses on models and methods to emphasize such strengths.
