EMWWAA has recently been awarded HLF funding for an 18 month project on:

70 Years of Struggle and Achievement: Life Stories of Ethnic Minority Women in Wales

The stories of women from Wales’ minority communities are seldom heard. Our HLF project will document how ethnic minority women have built lives in Wales and made significant contributions to Welsh society since 1948. This oral history, collected in both audio and audio-visual forms and complemented by family photos, will form the basis for a book, DVD, website and an archive.

The women to be featured will include both women from long settled, often mixed families and those who have come to Wales from various parts of South and East Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and the Middle East. Some arrived as migrant workers, others as refugees, or for reasons of education or marriage. Their life experience is an important part of the history of multi-ethnic Wales helping to chart social changes since the 1950s. Individual stories testify both to struggle against the odds and to the remarkable contribution that minority women have made to many sectors of Welsh society.
