Women’s Empower Hour is an event series that strives to support Asian American women and create solidarity within our communities. Through various educational workshops and lunch discussions, we have discussed issues such as Euro centrism, the fetishization of Asian American women, complexities of dual identities, and more. By creating safe spaces when women can share stories and learn about themselves, we aim to discover ways in which we can work together to embrace our unique identities.
