Book Description:

As is the case with many minority groups, Western media portrayals of Asian women are often based on negative stereotypes. Erroneous, but accepted, images of this group—a result of cultural misperceptions, language barriers, and unfamiliarity with Eastern-based customs—permeate our society. Regardless, women have played an essential role throughout history, and female achievements fill Asia's past.
