Asian/Pacific Islander American Women: A Historical Anthology edited by Shirley Hune and Gail M. Nomura [in AsianWeek]

Asian Pacific Islander American Women HuneMake sure you get this one into your library – it’s the very first collection of historical writings by and about APA women. It’s about rethinking our collective past as immigrant wives and picture brides, recovering our history both oral and written, contesting gender roles, creating “hybrid” lives, reshaping our communities after war, and negotiating ourselves in the brave new world of globalization, work, and motherhood.
