Adult Women Students in the Academy: Imposters or Members?
Studdard, Scarlette Spears
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v50 n3 p24-17 Fall 2002
The Imposter Phenomenon, secret feelings of fraudulence and inadequacy among high achievers, are more prevalent in women. Aspects of the educational environment, including sexual harassment and stereotypes, and institutional barriers may contribute to the syndrome. Additional research is needed on the intersection of race, class, and gender with the Imposter Phenomenon. (Contains 104 references.) (SK)
