¿Qué Dijeron?- What Did They Say?
This article examines the effects of language development among Hispanic women/Latinas and how such learning is shaped by bicultural and linguistic practices while navigating institutions of higher education. This qualitative, phenomenological study is part of a larger study designed to gather the perceptions of 25 Hispanic women/Latinas about their opportunities for leadership. The results of the study revealed the importance of language to their personal identity influenced by grounded theory–both their native language, Spanish, as their acquired English language and how likely it is to engage within community-based activities due to their ability to develop liaisons with various multilingual communities.
