Family and Educational Influences on the Childhood and Youth of Highly Creative Women

In this study we seek to identify influences for the creativity development of recognized women. We conducted interviews with 25 women, between 38 and 79 years old. The data, analyzed through grounded theory, were systematized into three categories: family influences; characteristics of childhood and adolescence; and learning. The results indicate incentives and challenges, coming from the family environment and from external situations. Many participants saw themselves as different in childhood, a feeling that generated enjoyment and pride. We identified formal and autonomous learning strategies, which resulted in an interdisciplinary and multicultural education. We discuss the variety of trajectories and gender barriers to creative success.
