Refugees in Transition--Educational Opportunity to Promote the Advancement of Women.
Convergence, v27 n2-3 p175-83 1994

Transition to a new location is an opportunity to reexamine norms about male/female roles as traditional interaction patterns are disrupted. Because women often adjust more successfully, they may assume personal or family leadership roles. (SK)
