Gender inequalities in income and wealth make women particularly vulnerable to poverty. Participatory Rapid Appraisal (PRA) is a research process, which enables practitioners to uncover an unmet need or an under‐served group within a community. The study focuses on a case study chosen to illustrate the strengths and limitations of using PRA as a method to assess the health and social needs of women in a deprived inner city area of North Belfast. The study demonstrates that PRA can provide a greater insight into gender inequalities and unmet health and social needs.
