Event Celebrates Chinese American Women in History

Join us in highlighting and recognizing Chinese American women in our nation’s history.

The 1882 Foundation and Chinese American Museum DC are partnering to host the inaugural Chinese American Women in History Conference (CAWHC), October 24–26, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The conference seeks to promote research and raise awareness of the contributions of Chinese American women. We seek to address gaps in the historical narrative of women in the Chinese American community before 1965, in addition to fostering inter-generational dialogue and understanding in contemporary Chinese America.

Through two days of a blend of academic research and individual storytelling, CAWH brings our focus to the underrepresented histories central to our community. The vent includes presentations, a film screening, and a day of community conversations. The sessions are spread out in a 1-block radius around the new Chinese American Museum at 16th St. NW and M St. The event will be at the museum, the University of California Washington Center, and the historic Charles Sumner School.
