Doctoral Advisement Relationships between Women: On Friendship and Betrayal.
Heinrich, Kathleen T.
Journal of Higher Education, v66 n4 p447-69 Jul-Aug 1995
This study examined the experiences of 22 women in advisory relationships with women dissertation committee members. Mentoring relationships became professional friendships, while nonmentoring relationships were marked by silent betrayals. Both phenomena were elucidated when advisees' recollections were compared with memories of mother-daughter relationships in the context of feminist psychological literature. (Author/MSE)
