     While Dr. Chiu Chang has authored more than 50 books in Chinese, whose topics range from law to marriage, “Herstory--the legal history of Chinese American women” is her first book in English. It is also her most significant book to date. Even though it took her three painstaking Dr. Chiu has been preparing for this book her whole life.

 

     Dr. Chiu grew up in Taiwan and immigrated to America 44 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 spending 25 years. One of hers lawsuits was a pro bono case where she negotiated against the banks on behalf of 250 Taiwanese families who had purchased Lehman Brothers junk bonds. The Taiwan her for her good deed which they alleged to be “illegal practice of Taiwan law.” Dr. Chiu prevailed in both the Taiwan District Court and Appellate Court.

 

     Not one to just practice law, she was elected to be a Taiwan Senator and even hosted four television shows.  in Hong Kong catapulted her into the limelight. She swiftly become a celebrity female attorney and personality, still to this date a real feat in Taiwan.

 

     This book is a culmination of Herstory exhibition she curated. What started as a small personal project for Dr. Chiu snowballed into a global sensation. International libraries, museums around from Taiwan, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hawaii, New York and more have  a search in the index of the library of  for the phrase “Chinese American women” yielded not a single result, now thanks to Herstory, thousands and thousands of entries exist. Dr. Chiu is efforts, Chinese American women have secured a place in history.

  邱彰博士是超過50本中文書的作者,但「Herstory-美國華人女性法律史」是她的第一本英文書,也是她至今以來最重要的作品。但她為這本書已經準備了一生。

  邱博士在台灣長大,44年前移民美國,她獲得新澤西州立大學生物化學的博士學位及哥倫比亞大學的法律博士學位。她執業律師已經超過30年。

 

  她最膾炙人口的案子就是代表250個台灣家庭,做為他們的公益律師,跟賣給他們雷曼債的銀行談判。她也因此遭台灣律師公會起訴,說她非法執行台灣法律。邱博士在地方法院和高等法院及最高法院都打贏了這場官司。

  邱博士曾被選為台灣的立法委員,並主持過許多電視節目。1992-1994年衛視中文台的「邱彰說法」節目讓她一舉成名,是台灣著名的美國律師。

 

  她開始策展Herstory 時,只是做為個人的一個小項目,但本展很快的就成為國際上極受歡迎的展覽。重要的圖書館及博物館,包括台灣、洛杉磯、舊金山、夏威夷、紐約都展出了Herstory。

  當邱博士剛開始為Herstory 做研究時,在美國國會圖書館的搜尋中打入「美國華人女性」這幾個字,找不到一筆資料。因為Herstory的展覽,現在在「美國華人女性」下有成千上萬筆的資料;也因為邱博士的努力,美國華人女性終於成就了她們的歷史地位。
