An Uncensored Life: Zerbanoo Gifford
Harper Collins, 10 dic 2015 - 240 pagine
An Uncensored Life is a compelling biography of a human rights campaigner, philanthropist, women's champion, author and founder of the ASHA Centre - a game-changer who speaks her mind. Born in India, Zerbanoo Gifford moved to London at the age of four. By her early thirties she had become a pioneer for Asians in British public life. She chaired committees, advised political leaders and was the first Asian woman to stand for Parliament, having been elected onto Harrow Council. Overcoming racial attacks, political disenchantment, legal battles against the Government and a near-death experience, Zerbanoo's is a gripping story of a fearless woman who has held fast to the causes of equality and global justice despite all odds.
