Summary
Kwai Fong Lai is from Hong Kong, Alberta Onyejekwe from Ghana, and Angela Williams from Jamaica. Three women who have different stories and different aspirations but share a common bond: they are immigrants to Canada, women of color, struggling to make a dignified life for themselves, despite the odds against them. The obstacles they face include racial and sexual discrimination, lack of recognition for their skills and qualifications and inadequate access to social services. However their stories, told partly through interviews, also reveal the wit and vision that inspires them to continue moving forward in pursuit of their dreams
