Religion as a Support Factor for Women of Color Pursuing Science Degrees: Implications for Science Teacher Educators
This study examines the factors women of color utilized as supports as part of their persistence in science majors. This article draws from a larger study of sixteen African-American, Hispanic, and African women who were navigating various undergraduate science majors at multiple colleges in the Northeast and Southeast United States.
