Perspectives on Minority Women in Higher Education

Synopsis

Ethnic minority women in America's education system often feel that they have "two strikes against them." This volume brings together contributions by African-American, Hispanic, and other scholars who discuss various issues surrounding academic minority women, their dilemmas, and the roles they create for their successors. Subjects include the need for sensitization to cultural differences and methods for dealing with subtle and overt discrimination. The contributors call for support and networking systems, and make suggestions for conflict resolution.
