from a Feminist Perspective. Nancy Munoz, Women’s and Gender Studies major and McNair Scholar, researched the concept of the “dutiful daughter” role and “good role” in Mexican American cultural relations. Munoz specifically centered on investigating how cultural gender norms contributed to Mexican American women’s pursuit and achievement within a higher education, as it is linked to the development of individuality, autonomy and self sufficiency/competency. Throughout, her research, Munoz focused on the emotional impact of traditional gender roles, and the possibility that different gender norms and roles may provide increased flexibility for women within the Mexican American community. Presented by Women’s Studies Center.
