Description: Between 1945 and the new century millions of women, including mothers and migrants, joined the labour force. These changes are brought to life through the stories of migrant women, working in factories and hospitals, banks, care homes, shops and universities over a period of 60 years. Migrant Women's Voices is an autobiography of the post-war period as Britain became a multi-cultural society and waged work the norm for most women. McDowell illustrates the shift in migration patterns as post-imperial migrants to the UK replaced the immediate post-war pattern of migrants from war-torn Europe and who were then themselves joined by migrants from an increasingly diverse range of countries as the 20th century drew to a close. McDowell enables women from generations of immigration to tell their sadly unchanging stories of disgraceful exploitation and discrimination. From wartime refugees from Eastern Europe and hopeful women from the Caribbean, brought by the government to rescue the economy and build health and welfare services after 1945, to 21st century migrants from many cultures and countries, they have made indispensable contributions to sustaining the NHS and other essential services, even banking. Whatever their colour or skills, they have faced hostility and consignment to lower-paid, lower-status work than they merit. - Patricia M. Thane, King's College London, UK What do immigrant women say about their work in Britain? Until now, we didn't know, because no one cared to ask or listen. This captivating book gives voice and visibility to generations of immigrant working women in Britain. From textile mill workers of the 1940s, shopkeepers of the 1950s, to the nannies and investment bankers of the 1990s and software developers of today, the narratives reveal experiences of loss, displacement and exploitation, but also aspirations, dignity and achievements. A must read for anyone wanting to understand the texture of life and work in Britain today. - Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, University of Southern California, USA
