IT ALL STARTED WHEN

     The earliest Chinese American women who came to the U.S. in 1785 were mostly merchant’s wives and housemaids. In the following 165 years, these women pioneers established an impressive legal history. They not only fought to become American citizens but also fiercely fought for their right to be treated with dignity as human beings.

     Our exhibit showcases the legal milestones and often harrowing stories of these brave women. Before their lives and accomplishments are completely lost in the annals of history, we aim to tell her story. We finally give voice to those Chinese American women who paved the way for our past, present and future.

     This is a grand departure from the typical exhibit with historical posters and documents. Art speaks louder than words!Through sound and painting, the exhibit is an unprecedented multi-media art installation meant to memorialise snd celebrate these courageous Chinese American women.

  最早的華人女性約在1785年來到美國,她們多為商人的妻子及女傭。在接下來的165年裡,這些先驅者寫下了一篇篇動人的法律史。她們為了成為美國公民而奮鬥,全力爭取被人性化及尊嚴的對待。

  我們的展覽選取了一些已成為里程碑法律案件,案件背後的故事可能有些悲哀,但在這些故事消失在歷史的長河以前,我們決定以展覽為這群偉大的女性發聲。

  這個展覽和傳統的歷史展不一樣,因為我們採用藝術、動畫、聲音及繪畫,創造出一個史無前例的多媒體展。

  謹以此網站紀念所有勇敢的美國華人女性。
