Asian American Woman on the Move

What do women want? In 1977, the U.S. federal government funded for the first and only time a National Women’s Conference to create a collective agenda on women’s issues. Inspired by the 1975 United Nations conference on women in Mexico City, the NWC was held in Houston, Texas. 20,000 women and men attended from 50 states and 6 territories. This talk explores how Asian American women, including those from Minnesota, contributed to the National Women’s Conference and how their proposed issues resonate with today’s society.

Judy Tzu-Chun Wu received her Ph.D. in U.S. History from Stanford University.  She authored Dr. Mom Chung of the Fair-Haired Bastards: the Life of a Wartime Celebrity, Radicals on the Road: Internationalism, Orientalism, and Feminism during the Vietnam Era and the most recent “a political biography of Patsy Takemoto Mink (New York University Press 2022). She also serves on the editorial board for the University of California Press.

This seminar, sponsored by CAAPAM, will be presented in English and is free to all.  Please join us on Sunday, August 8th at 7:30PM (CDT) on ZOOM for the online seminar.
