Patriarchal Domination and Its Impact on Women’s Education among Zimbabwean Immigrants in the United States

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Objective: This pilot study examined the effects of patriarchal domination on Zimbabwean immigrant women’s educational accomplishments. This is borne out of the apprehension that patriarchal domination continues to hamper women’s efforts to extricate themselves from poverty through education. The objective of the project was to use photographs (Wang, 1991) to allow Zimbabwean immigrant women to share their educational experiences through a photovoice narrative. The sample included seven Zimbabwean women struggling to fulfill their educational aspirations.

Findings: Information gathered from this photovoice study indicated that patriarchal domination is very prevalent among African immigrants. Participants expressed how they do not get support from their husbands and male family members to pursue their educational aspirations. Husbands in most cases would encourage their wives to look for jobs whilst they themselves continue to advance their education. As a result, Zimbabwe immigrant women continue to be underrepresented in higher education due to patriarchal domination.
