Event description

Description

Exhibition and talk delivered by: Dr Sundari Anitha, University of Lincoln

Striking Women celebrates the significant role played by South Asian women in two industrial disputes in Greater London-the strike at Grunwick between 1976 and 1978 and the dispute at Gate Gourmet that erupted in 2005. Through images, text and interviews, this exhibition puts these two disputes in the wider context of South Asian women's activism in the workplace and explores the similarities and differences between them, seperated by thirty years but united by women's courage, their struggle against poor working conditions and low wages and by the stereotyical representation of minority women workers by the British press and in other texts at the time.
