Sari by Edwina Pio
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As well as exploring the layered lives of Indian women, it looks at policy areas of interest to further dialogue and assist with strategies that will enhance the lives of these women in our multicultural society. What is it like for Indian women who enter the world of work in New Zealand? SARI showcases the lives of Indian women working in New Zealand through four generations, in their own words and through official data. Stories of fabulous success merge with underemployment and no employment. Memories of Maori friendships and Maori relatives intertwine with mentoring by Pakeha women. Sewn into the stories are the spangles of an Indian patriarchal system which supported these women and at the same time created very strict demarcation lines; and the shaded sequins of in-laws who might manipulate them as they sought to carve out their careers and gain an education.
