Abstract

This study examined the learning and development experiences of English-speaking Caribbean immigrant women from a cross-cultural context. Using Belenky's model of women's ways of knowing, the study found that self-agency, culture, social capital, and the sociocultural environment influence the epistemological position that a woman occupies. The study also found that women move freely among these positions, depending on the context of the experience.
