Full text not available from this repository.


‘Mothers and daughters on the margins: gender, generation and education’ is a thesis that explores the inter-generational marginalisation of working-class mothers and their daughters both in terms of education, employment and family relationships. In this thesis class is explored through the visual data and interview accounts of nine mother and daughter dyads all residing in the same disadvantaged locality in urban South Wales. The thesis employs sociological and psychological lenses to examine social reproduction, and the ways in which gender, place and class act as barriers to educational progression for the participants, and the psychological, physical and practical costs of social mobility. The thesis argues that women and girls on the margins of contemporary Wales continue to struggle to be agents of their own destiny, against a tide of spatial, structural, social, cultural, economic, psychological and patriarchal processes
