Description

This is the first manuscript to provide interviews with black women who tell how they were held back educationally and in their careers because of racial discrimination. The research will explore in depth the reasons why some black minority ethnic women appear to succeed and achieve in education, employment training, and others may find the pathway stressful. The research is crucial, and it will provide an opportunity for policy makers and others, to explore the issues raised here and develop further work in this important area, thus creating further opportunities for these women to succeed. The book is based on an ethnographic approach which includes the use of interactive focus groups and interviews. The research will attempt to examine the complexity of race, gender, and potential barriers for unemployed black minority ethnic women.
