This ethnographic study of middle-class British-Pakistani women in Manchester explores the sense of belonging they create through recognition and social status. Belonging in these communities is enacted through the performance of different identities-class, ethnicity, nationality, generation, age, religion, and gender-that earn them social power and status among family and friends. To prove they are "model migrants," worthy of respect and recognition, these women perform various and intersecting identities to maximize status and social capital in diverse situations. Far from being passive victims of racial, religious, or cultural discrimination, middle-class British-Pakistani women challenge prejudice against Muslims and British-Pakistanis through certain practices, objects, performances, and relationships, serving as ambassadors for their religious and ethnic identity through their conduct and interaction with others in daily life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Noreen Mirza's Navigating the Everyday as Middle-Class British Pakistani Women is a welcome addition to the body of literature engaging with issues of identity making and maintenance amongst British Muslims. ... The volume is an empirically driven, theoretically framed, and in-depth analysis presented in the conventional qualitative style, beginning with methodological, conceptual and contextual foundations that are used to frame the subsequent analysis. ... Mirza's work is a much-needed intersectional analysis of British-Pakistani women's agency that centres ethnicity and class." (Fatima Khan, Ethnic and Racial Studies, July 4, 2022)
