Presents a feminist transformation of suicidology, following a stage model proposed by Schuster & Van Dyne for the feminist transformation of research in general: (1) invisible women, (2) search for missing female scholars or suicide, (3) suicidal women as disadvantaged & (4) studied on their own terms, & (5) a genuine transformation of the perspectives guiding the field of study. This would lead to a focus on attempts as the norm while viewing completions as failed behavior.
