Abstract

Although minority women in graduate school perceive gender discrimination as more important than racial discrimination, compared to majority women, fewer of them receive socialization experiences that enhance their academic progress. Thus, although gender is a perceived barrier for majority women as well, minority women face an additional obstacle to success in graduate education and subsequent professional academic employment. The authors discuss policy implications for faculty recruitment and retention.
