Description: Gender-based achievement and participation gaps in mathematics among Palestinian/Arab Israelis favor girls and women, in the face of various intersecting challenges. We follow the stories of Palestinian/Arab Israeli women students in mathematics education to better understand the context of their success in school mathematics and early career trajectories. Our analysis shows emergent related master-narratives: of Israel as a meritocracy; diligence as key to success in mathematics for girls and women; and mathematics achievement holding precious exchange-value. Guided by critical race feminism and Scott's notions of public/hidden transcripts, our intersectional analysis shows how the women's stories confirm, challenge, and inflect these narratives. We propose directions for further research and additional implications. © 2020 Elsevier Ltd
