Individualism and collectivism revisited: a study of black and minority ethnic women

G Healy, HK Bradley, N Mukherjee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

Abstract

This article seeks to add discussion of the intersection of gender and ethnicity to the debates on individualism and collectivism. In doing so, it challenges the prevailing view, in these debates, of the rise of individualism and the decline in collectivism. Through a study of black and minority ethnic women trade unionists, it shows how a differentiated workforce, rather than leading to individualism at work, may contribute to union renewal and inspire more creative forms of collectivism.
