Reviews

'At a time when Asian women are only being discussed in terms of their veils, forced marriages and oppressive religion, what a relief it is to read a book about Asian women as agents not objects' -- Institute of Race Relations
'Amrit Wilson does not let anyone off the hook ... This book will be of supreme interest to activists and those working with or for South Asian women in the voluntary sector or community projects' -- Ursula Sharma, The Journal of Contemporary South Asia
'This is a captivating book which will influence many people's perceptions of Asian women's lives. An essential reference book for anyone interested in issues of gender, race, culture, migration, disaspora, and identity' -- Aisha Gill, Roehampton University
'Wilson is an activist who has long dealt with the knottiest issues of gender and race in officially multi-cultured Britain. Each of the three words in the book's title is like a bell that tolls dismally for each of us' -- The Times of India
