Making the Most of What You've Got? Resources, Values and Inequalities in Young Women's Transitions to Adulthood.
Thomson, Rachel; Henderson, Sheila; Holland, Janet
Educational Review, v55 n1 p33-46 Feb 2003
Three biographical interviews over 3 years were conducted with 100 young adults. Cases of three disadvantaged females in transition from compulsory schooling illustrate that material and individual resources are distributed very unequally. The rhetoric of individual success is tempered by gender- and class-based obligations, and success for these young women is mediated by constructions of femininity. (Contains 32 references.) (SK)
