Between 2007-9, as part of the AHRC- funded research project, we sought to document and analyse the struggles of South Asian women workers in London, challenging dominant stereotypes about South Asian women‘s docility and dependence. This research involved life history interviews with migrant women workers of South Asian origin who took part in the two disputes. Following on from that project, we have translated the research findings into materials which can be used by school students and community education projects, including a mobile exhibition and a ‘manga‘ style comic which documents the life-stories of two South Asian women from Grunwick and Gate Gourmet respectively. This article introduces these materials and discusses the challenges in translating our research findings into materials usable by a non-academic audience.
