"South Asian Mothering brings fresh new voices and perspectives to the topic of mothering. It reaches beyond the usual discourse to provide insights that speak not only to the South Asian mothers and women but our global community, embracing and challenging us all."
-SUZANNE MUIR, Equity and Inclusive Education Coordinator, Halton District School Board and author of Over the Moon stories, children's multicultural animated e-book apps
This book is a counterpoint to the dominant media images of South Asian women, offering insights into the complexity of their lives in a way that yields important understandings of women's acts of agency in different times and places. It makes visible the multiple contexts of their lives in a ways that can help to spark needed dialogue within and across ages and diverse groups and communities. This is an innovative addition to the field of mothering, as well as to literature on South Asian, migration, and broader fields of women's studies, cultural studies, health and social sciences
