Muslim Women in Graduate Studies: Some Insights into the Accessibility of Higher Education for Minority Women Students
Oplatka, Izhar; Lapidot, Orit
Studies in Higher Education, v37 n3 p327-344 2012
Based on semi-structured interviews with 11 Muslim women graduate students in Israel, the current study provides insight into the determinants enabling this group of women in the Arab sector to apply for a second degree and succeed. Among these determinants are the family, the high school, the individual's personal drive for learning, the husband's support and the community. But, it is likely that the women students' character had much impact upon the manner in which these determinants function in their life stories. Theoretical and practical implications for the study of minority women are suggested. (Contains 1 table.)
