asa 001 hune doing gender with a feminist gaze a historical reconstruction of asian america
In “Doing Gender with a Feminist Gaze: A Historical Reconstruction of Asian America,â€ Shirley Hune states that â€œviewing Asian American womenâ€™s lives as gendered reveals how they have actively negotiated and contested traditional hierarchical gender relations and flexed their gender roles to fulfill personal goals and to pursue household and community interestsâ€(427). Explain and define in your own words and historical examples what Huneâ€™s quote specifically means as part of your thesis paragraph and thesis angle for this paper. You can certainly think about Mary Paik Leeâ€™s Quiet Odyssey and what were the specific issues and challenges that Korean American women faced as they fulfilled various roles in their families/household and in the building of ethnic communities in the U.S.?Additionally, research on what were some of the important roles and activities of Korean American women in the transnational movement for national independence and nation building, anti-imperialism/colonialism movements, in the U.S. and /or globally? For example, what information on Asian womenâ€™s transnational activities did you find that provides evidence of their specific gendered activities in terms of patriotism, fighting for Independence and nation-building in history?

point/thesis you are going to state/construct for building your first paper. Do not just answer one
