Laotian daughters: working toward community, belonging, and environmental justice

Shah, Bindi (2012) Laotian daughters: working toward community, belonging, and environmental justice, Pennsylvania, US, Temple University Press, 201pp.

Record type: Book


Laotian Daughters focuses on second-generation environmental justice activists in Richmond, California. The book charts these women's efforts to improve the degraded conditions in their community and explores the ways their activism and political practices resist the negative stereotypes of race, class, and gender associated with their ethnic group.

Using ethnographic observations, interviews, focus groups and archival data on their participation in Asian Youth Advocates - a youth leadership development project - the book analyses the teenagers' mobilization for social rights, cross-race relations, and negotiations of gender and inter-generational relations. She also addresses issues of ethnic youth, and immigration and citizenship and how these shape national identities.
