A Glimpse Through Purdah: Asian Women : the Myth and the Reality
Trentham Books, 1999 - 150 pages
"The interviews with women living in Karachi, Delhi and other cities on the Subcontinent and working as teachers, or in finance, retailing and the garment industry, make illuminating reading. Interviews with Asian women in a northern English town illustrate that migration has created more new problems for Asian women than it has solved."--BOOK JACKET.
