This past year we have witnessed a rise of violence against the AAPI community, and that Asian women were disproportionately victimized. Complicit in this is the historical stereotypes of Asian women as docile, submissive and silent. We are countering this by celebrating the strengths of AAPI women and honoring their contributions and impact.
Proceeds will go to AAPI Women Lead, an organization with supports AAPI women and girls with workshops and and research, and promotes movements such as #ImReady, which addresses issues like gender-based and racial discrimination and sexual harassment in the community.
