Thursday, 19th April, 2018    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Five Leaves Bookshop*

Striking Women is centred on two industrial disputes, the Grunwick strike of the 70s and the Gate Gourmet dispute of 2005. Both involved large numbers of South Asiam women – 32 of whom were interviewed for this book, about politics, the history of migration and settlement from South Asia and how South Asian women have engaged with the labour market and labour movement.

Sundari Anitha and Ruth Pearson have researched and written on the labour market experience of South Asian women, on violence against women in the UK and India and about migrant workers and the gender impact of globalisation.
