In a little while, we'll move to audience questions, so please write them in the Q&A.
Nellie Wong

Little did we understand the importance of having Three Asian American Writers Speak Out on Feminism. To even identify as feminists rocked the boat. Yellow women as feminists? Yes, yellow feminists speaking out.

(From Hedi - Mitsuye’s daughter.) Live events can be hard, so Diane and crew so nicely allowed Mitsuye’s participation to be on tape. But Mitsuye is here relaxed and enjoying watching the program … and seeing all of your comments live. Thank you.
