This study by a Sikh woman who came to England after growing up and going to university in the Punjab illustrates the changes in the values of Sikh women in England over the years and between the migrants and British born Sikhs. Her research subjects, all based in Leeds, come from varied backgrounds and together make up a picture of Sikh women that is transferable to England and the UK. The book is arranged as follows

Chapter 1 The backgrounds of the Sikh women
Chapter 2 Religious values
Chapter 3 Women in Sikhism and Sikh society
Chapter 4 The social life of Sikh women
Chapter 5 Cultural values
Chapter 6, entitled Listen to Me provides excerpts from the women's stories about their own lives, and the conclusion confirms that Sikh women have adapted well to life on a different continent and have a strong sense of identity.

Foreword by Professor Kim Knott
