The purpose of this grounded theory study was to generate a model that explains how female doctoral candidates manage and negotiate the tensions relating to their roles and identities as females, mothers, and academics within the social structure of academia.

In this session we discuss (a) tensions women face in the doctoral process, (b) a theoretical foundation for female identity, and (c) strategies for successfully intersecting multiple identity dimensions ...
