Perceptions of South Asian Women in Canadian Context.
Naidoo, J. C.
The abstract of a scholarly research paper on the status of South Asian women in Canada and tables based both on surveys and questionnaires are contained in this report. In the survey samples, selected cultural, religious, and attitudinal beliefs of South Asian and Anglo-Saxon women living in Canada are presented. Demographic data for participants is provided. Data analysis reveals that (1) education and opportunity are what the South Asian woman wants most from Canada and (2) South Asian Canadians have difficulty dealing with the contrast between a national policy endorsing multiculturalism and the negativism of citizens toward this policy. Further analyses contained in the paper are briefly outlined. Tables of data are included. (WI)
