Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article describes the assessment by immigrant Palestinian women of the quality of their own lives not only as women but as Palestinian women in particular. The study is based on the author's fieldwork in Chicago's Palestinian community, which resulted in detailed life histories of twenty-two women (p. 41). The women's assessment is based on the values they hold, their sense of history, what they believe to be desirable, possible achievements, and the ways in which their lives compare to those around them (e.g., the parental generation, non-Arabs, etc.).
