BREAK THE SILENCE: AAPI Activism & Feminism
Date: 4:00pm - 5:00pm PDT April 21, 2014 Location: Watzek Library Conference Room #317

From the lotus blossom, tiger mom, to the hypersexualized and fetishized geisha or “china doll”…from the feminine, desexualized Asian male to the kung-fu, karate kicking Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee…from the forever foreigner with the thick Asian accent to the filipino youtube stars…Tired of these tropes that plague Asian American communities? Come to this workshop about AAPI activism and feminism, focusing on exploring and deconstructing the masculine and feminine tropes within AAPI communities! EVERYONE is welcome!
