The largest recipient of Indian indentured migrants was Mauritius, where a  majority of the population are today descended from these labourers.

Guyana, Trinidad, Fiji and Natal were  also important recipients of indentured workers and the French sugar colonies also received some migrants under this scheme.

The volume makes extensive use of archival records to describe the working and personal lives of women under indenture.

The book demonstrates the key contribution of women to the economies and societies where they settled and provides important insights into their struggles to overcome discrimination and inequality both in their personal relationships with male partners and families and vis-a-vis the colonial state.
