HERSTORY 1 & 2: Exhibit and Author Talk


(Woodland, CA) – In honor of Women’s History Month this March, Yolo County Library will be showing the exhibit: Herstory 1 & 2: The Legal History of Chinese American Women, at all branches, except for the South Davis Montgomery Branch Library. The exhibit, curated by Dr. Chang C. Chen, aka Dr. Chiu Chang (邱彰), 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, the author aims to tell Herstory and give voice to those Chinese American women who paved the way for our past, present, and future.


The theme for the 2023 Women’s History Month is Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories. It was developed by the National Women’s History Alliance and honors women in every community who, like Dr. Chen, have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade. More information about the theme can be found online at


Dr. Chen grew up in Taiwan and immigrated to America 50 years ago to pursue her graduate studies. After obtaining her Ph.D. in biochemistry from Rutgers University and J.D. from Columbia University Law School, she launched an illustrious legal career spanning 35 years. Not one to just practice law, she was elected as a Taiwan senator and hosted four television shows. During the 1990s, her most popular program, “Chiu Chang Talking Law,” on Star-TV in Hong Kong, catapulted her into the limelight. She swiftly became a celebrity female attorney and personality, still to this day a real feat in Taiwan. Dr. Chen has authored 83 books on topics ranging from law to marriage. Herstory: The Legal History of Chinese American Women was her first book in English and the first exhibition she curated.  


Dr. Chen will discuss her books and the exhibit at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 25th at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library, located at 315 E. 14th street in Davis, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 20th at the Arthur F. Turner Community Library, located at 1212 Merkley Avenue in West Sacramento. Both events will be recorded. Additionally, Yolo County Library branches are providing bibliographies featuring books by and about women who reflect this year’s theme and a commemorative bookmark.

台灣來的天使, 圖書館員黃華玲



我們誠摯的邀請您出席“Herstory 2 - 美國華人女性法律史”展覽的開幕式,這個展覽呈列1852年以來華人女性在美國最高法院及各州最高法院參與的標竿性的訴訟案件的歷史。展覽於3月1日至5月31日展出,開幕式將於2023年3月11日上午11点在蒙特利公園圖書館举行。




我決定為這群弱勢女性採取行動,我的方法是用展覽及出書給他們一個平台,記錄她們長期以來在美國法庭上的抗爭。 “Herstory”和“Herstory 2”,就是展出華人女性從1852年以來在最高法院及各州最高法院爭取平權的歷史。此外,我還為她們出版了一系列關於這個主题的書籍。我們的網站是,你可以了解我們的使命和我們的工作在美國所產生的影響。


從2015年至今,Herstory走遍美國和台灣40多個重要的圖書館和博物館,對我来說,“Herstory” 的展出不只是數量而已,Herstory為這群華人女性爭取到了應得的認可和可見度,我們講述她們的故事,突顯她們的勇气、堅韧和不屈不饒的精神。


2016年,“Herstory”在洛杉磯中央圖書館隆重開幕,由台北經濟文化辦事處和台灣大學南加州校友會共同贊助,活動獲得了巨大的成功,我們將於2023年3月11日再次在洛杉磯舉行Herstory 2的開幕式,我們很榮幸的邀请到美國國會議员趙美心蒞臨指導,如果您能作為貴賓出席,我們將感到無比榮幸,因為您的到場提供了我們這群身處第一線的義工最重要的精神支助。
