Finding a Voice - Asian Women in Britain published in 1978 and winner of the Martin Luther King award, was, and remains, an influential feminist book. Based on interviews, discussions and intimate one-to- one conversations with South Asian women, conducted often in Urdu, Hindi or Bengali (if they were most at ease in these languages) and sensitively translated, the book explores what it was like to be a migrant, a worker, and a woman straddled between two cultures in late 1970s Britain. Through women's experiences, feelings and analysis of their own lives it examines family relationships, growing militancy at work, experiences of racist and misogynistic immigration policies, school life and also friendship and love. This edition of the book includes a remarkable new chapter titled 'Reflecting on Finding a Voice in 2018' in which young South Asian women in Britain describe what the book means to them today and in what ways their lives are different, and similar, to those of the women in the book.
