Background; Jasvinder Sanghera is an author and activist. She wrote the best-seller “Shame”, and founded the campaigning charity Karma Nirvana.
Suggestions for discussion ; Jasvinder’s contribution to the work of peace in the UK has been to fight for the rights of women threatened by forced marriage – and to then use the personal lessons of that struggle to help and support others through her writing and campaigning . Are you surprised to hear her sort of work described as “peacemaking” ? Jasvinder talks about the influence of her own Sikh background – what in your own cultural background do you struggle against ? And – taking a leaf out of Jasvinder’s book – what strengths for struggle has that background also given you ?
