Journal of Appalachian Studies, v7 n1 p64-92 Spr 2001
Nine poor, adolescent, Appalachian girls--six of them Black--participated in a program that used math and science attitudes and achievement as vehicles to enhance life opportunities. Interviews explored their aspirations, support groups, gender relations, self-concepts, and resistance efforts in school. Girls should be taught to recognize and oppose ideas that disempower them.
