Women's Pipeline for Change Research Fellow
About this Project
Sheneal Parker centered her study on civically engaged mothers of color in order to deepen our understanding of the barriers mothers of color face in entering and sustaining a political career. She conducted interviews with women of color legislators and a focus group consisting of civically engaged mothers of color leaders. In addition to identifying barriers to entry into politics, Parker cited several factors that facilitate the political leadership of women of color—including engagement in community work, support, name recognition, and the leadership development of young women of color. She discusses her findings in more detail in these video clips, as well as in the summary and presentation below.
