Example text

This material is presented in Table 2.  Pretoria: Government Printer, January 1985.  Pretoria: Government Printer, January 1985. " A major characteristic we found was great pride in being Memon.  Together, Meer and Kuper present a balanced and empathetic understanding of Indian South Africans, their cultural traditions, and their lives during the 1950s and 1960s. With this background knowledge about the population groups and the census data presented in Table 1, we aimed at selecting study participants who would be representative of this sample population.

Indian families are also marked by the small number of widowed, separated, or deserted women who live alone or with minor children.  However, respect relationships avoided confrontation.  A mother who controls the household and supervises a daughter and a daughter­in­law will invariably give preference to the former as she assigns duties for cleaning, caring, and cooking.  The second most frequent residential category was that in which either the father or mother was deceased.  It was particularly a younger aunt who may have been a confidante, giving advice about morals and sex or explaining the occurrence of menarche.

Such ideals result in patterned forms of behavior, in actions and choices which are rewarded; in short, in expressions of culture which differ from one society to another, exacting rewards for adults who perform the roles correctly and praise for young persons who follow them as blueprints for behavior. Population Profile The original selection of participants produced thirty women in each category; but for a variety of reasons, the final sample contained twenty­nine pre­ and twenty­ seven postmenopausal women.
