Black Women’s Representation

(p.69) Chapter 3 Black Women’s Representation
Sisters in the Statehouse

Nadia E. Brown

Oxford University Press

Chapter 3 utilizes elite interviews to investigate how the intersection of the multiplicity of Black women’s identities affects their decision-making process. It evaluates the extent to which the data support the theory that legislators’ identities are a factor in the legislative decision making. The chapter argues that the political context for a particular issue strongly influences the likelihood that a representative will use her identity as a means for understanding and articulating policy preferences on the Minority Business Enterprise program.
