We examined the experiences of women of color (WoC) with critical worldviews in education doctoral programs. How students experience doctoral programs in relation to forwarding a critical perspective is integral to positive student development and academic success. A critical race feminist (CRF) approach framed the voices and experiences of 14 WoC from education doctoral programs and revealed 3 central spaces of resistance to develop this paradigm for the WoC: Faculty relationships, peer relationships, and opportunities outside of their programs. In using a CRF framework, we also centered the voices of WoC by citing only WoC scholars. Termed by Ahmed (2017), this approach recalls a "feminist memory." Implications for supporting WoC for not only surviving but also thriving in education doctoral programs are discussed.
