As Harris Prepares for Pence Debate, Asian American Women Pay Tribute to Their Immigrant Mothers, Grandmothers

As Democratic nominee Kamala Harris takes the debate stage tonight against Vice President Mike Pence, Asian American Pacific Islanders across the nation are showing support for Harris by tweeting images and the stories of their mothers and grandmothers.

The Research Brief is a short take about interesting academic work.

The big idea

Women and Asian students are significantly less likely than their counterparts who identify as men or white to receive payment during internships. This finding is based on an analysis of 2,410 responses to the National Survey of Student Engagement. The trend held up even when student background, academic major and the type of college attended were taken into account.

These data were part of a set of survey questions that measure the quality of students’ internship experiences. Our study was published in the July/August issue of the Journal of College Student Development. Using statistical analysis, we found that the calculated odds of women getting paid during their internships were 34% lower than for the men in the sample. For Asian, Native Hawaiian and

Clients who had previously told them of abusive partners who choked them, struck them in the face or threw them down stairs were now saying: “Don’t call me. It’s not safe.” Not only were their partners watching them around the clock, but many took away their phones, cars and credit cards, making it harder for women to seek help or leave.
