About this title


Examines the experiences of real Chinese women in America, from their arrival in 1834 to the present

From the Inside Flap:

Chinese Women of America is the first book to examine the experience of Chinese women in America from their arrival in 1834 to the present day.

Utilizing archival research findings, 274 oral history interviews, and 135 photographs from public and private collections throughout the country, this long-needed work documents the lives of real women, smashing the stereotypes of China Doll, Suzie Wong, and Dragon Lady.

Beginning with the treatment of women in China in the mid-nineteenth century, Yung details the hardships suffered by the new immigrants, the conflicts faced by the growing American-born population, and the growth of social consciousness and activism due to the civil rights and women's movements.  She concludes by exploring the contemporary concerns facing a diverse range of Chinese American women today.

Authoritative and fascinating, this unique study is a valuable contribution to the history of ethnic women in America.
