This study examines the effects of culture on the communication behavior of female Arab and American students with male Western college instructors. Results reveal that Arab women have less apprehension than do Americans and are more likely to engage in persuasion strategies in conflict situations. In addition, Arab cultural identification is positively correlated with engaging in persuasion strategies that blame the instructor for the conflict and negatively correlated with engagement strategies in which the student accepts blame for the conflict. Results are discussed in relation to education and the emerging role of women in Arab society.
