"The erasure of Asian women from history has tangibly negative impacts on Asian-American women everywhere. Representation matters, not just in Hollywood, but in our curriculum and cultural consciousness. These women’s stories matter. In a country where women of color’s contributions are so often pushed to the sidelines, there’s no time like Women’s History Month to celebrate the impact Asian-American women have had on history and our lives." - Katherine Oung
