The stories of women from Wales’ minority communities are seldom heard. This book comprises the life stories of 40 Black Asian Minority Ethnic women that were finalists/winners for the Ethnic Minority Welsh Women Achievement award (2011-2019). The women featured include some from long-settled, often mixed families and women from various parts of South and East Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Their life experiences are a fundamental part of the history of multi-ethnic Wales. Individual stories testify both to the struggle and to the remarkable contribution that minority women have made to the many sectors of Welsh society.

In hearing about the event, it culminates feelings of empowerment and deeper understanding to be able to hear these unheard stories. By sharing them we can find further meaning, we are opening a positive and equal platform for the next generation to reveal the truth of our experiences as a collective consciousness.
