Addressing gender bias in teenage mums of lower socio-economic status.

Dr Carol Lambert
Project team: Dr Carol Lambert, Rhona Williams, Dr Judith Dyson and Florence Reedy (Doctoral candidate)

This is one part of a four-part project. The key aim of this part of the project is to increase access to Higher Education (HE) for teenage mothers by raising aspirations and reducing psychological barriers to continuing education. Working in collaboration with the Boulevard Centre that provides education specifically tailored for pregnant teenagers and teenage mothers, this project gives voice to this under-represented and marginalised group of female students who themselves can be subject to the negative attitudes held by societal members who interact with them. This project will enable collaborations with colleagues across the University including English, Drama, Social Work, Midwifery and Psychology.
