Abstract

Description

Dr Pippa Virdee of De Montfort University uncovers the hidden voices of Muslim women during the partition of the Punjab, India in 1947. Using first-hand accounts, Dr Virdee reveals how women, often sheltered from private and public spaces, created their own space during this complex and traumatising time. This talk was part of The National Archives’ Diversity Week, a series of events and activities aimed at promoting equality and diversity in how we work and what we do.
