Friedman, Adele C.
This paper presents student research from a class project on the Life and Literature of Foreign-Born Women in California. It examines the role of these women in agriculture, the arts, and political and economic life. Specific accounts of women from Russia, Poland, France, and Mexico are given. Others mentioned include those women born in America but with vast cultural disparity, the Black Creoles from Louisiana and the Native American. The researcher concludes that each women is an individual who has been shaped by her cultural tradition. Those women with the strongest or most content personalities are those who have maintained a cultural link with tradition. It is suggested that these women can serve to teach others from their experiences. (MA)
