Bradford Girls: Breaking Down the Barriers

Bradford Girls: Breaking Down the Barriers

This rigorous classroom learning resource tells the extraordinary and moving story of the girls' cricket team of Carlton Bollng College, Bradford. These courageous girls, all of South Asian heritage, pushed back against all conventions to overcome family and community pressures, and even ridicule, to pursue their love of playing cricket. They developed from complete novices to become national finalists at Lord's, earning many accolades and awards along the way. This resource is designed to develop literacy skills, and also encourages multi-cultural understanding as a snapshot of the issues facing girls of South Asian heritage in the early 21st century.
