The Good Daughter Dilemma: Latinas Managing Family and School Demands
Espinoza, Roberta
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v9 n4 p317-330 Oct 2010
This study documents strategies employed by Latina doctoral graduate students to balance family relationships with the demands of school to maintain their status of a "good daughter". In-depth interviews reveal some women integrate family and school by explaining the demands placed on them to enlist support while others keep their two social spheres separate by switching between them to minimize conflict. The patterns are discussed in the context of Latinas academic success in higher education.
