Minority women and austerity : Survival and resistance in France and Britain Hardback
Bassel and Emejulu explore minority women's experiences of and resistances to austerity measures in France and Britain.
Minority women are often portrayed as passive victims.
However, Minority women and austerity demonstrates how they use their race, class, gender and legal status as a resource for collective action in the face of the neoliberal colonisation of non-governmental organisations, the failures of left-wing politics and the patronising initiatives of policy-makers.
