This book presents the stories of 20 women from Bradford between the ages of 14 and 80. It offers an intricate mosaic of the experiences, views and hopes of these women and in so doing emphasises the power of people's lives to aid deeper debate and understanding and gives voice to an important and often marginalised group.
