Minority Women & Higher Education, No. 1.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
Various myths concerning black women and their educational status are examined, with current statistics provided to indicate their validity. Overall results of this examination indicate that minority women fare less well than minority men, just as white women fare less well than white men. It is suggested that minority women are affected by both sex and race discrimination and that they will not have a fair economic or educational opportunity unless and until both types of discrimination are eliminated. Just as efforts to remove racial barriers help minority women as well as minority men, efforts to remove sexual barriers benefit minority women as well as white women. (MJM)
