Hidden voices of Muslim women

A talk given by Dr Pippa Virdee of De Montfort University entitled 'Hidden Women: uncovering the veil of silence during the partition of Punjab, India 1947' is now available as a podcast from the National Archives.

Using first-hand accounts, Dr Virdee reveals how women, often sheltered from private and public spaces, created their own space during this complex and traumatising time.
