In the next installment of our Asian American Feminism series, NAPAWF*NYC will be hosting a workshop on Asian American history through a feminist lens. The Chinese Exclusion Act, World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans, and the Southeast Asian refugee crisis have been raised in national conversations on the persecution of South Asian, Arab, Sikh and Muslim communities. In these times, understanding Asian American history and our place in it has become more critical than ever.

Join us as we commemorate Womxn’s History Month by exploring the marginalized histories of our communities and families and challenging the ways in which history has been traditionally told, with the goal of identifying how we can shape those narratives into our own.

The workshop will include a brief presentation, interactive timeline, and discussion on our personal connections to Asian American history. Note that no prior knowledge in Asian American history or studies is required to participate in this workshop.

Special thanks to the Asian American Writers’ Workshop for opening its space to us for this timely conversation.
