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. Both local and global in her determination to see real change, Zerbanoo worked for the homeless charity Shelter and was director of Anti-Slavery International. 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. Described as a warrior princess, she is also known as a cosmic networker, connecting people of all backgrounds, faiths and traditions in celebrating their shared humanity. Ranging from funny to fascinating, spiritually uplifting to downright outrageous, her stories illustrate the challenges facing women in the modern world but also the triumphs and possibilities available to those open to life.Printed Pages: 240.
