Leadership in Public Arenas

The traditional Chinese society was a male-dominated society where men usually occupied leadership positions in the political arena. The immigrants carried this tradition to the United States. Before World War II, men dominated almost all major Chinese American community organizations. Most of the organizations did not accept female members.

Starting in the 1920s, an increasing number of Chinese American women became active in the public arena. They participated in community work, organized their own clubs, joined the labor movement, and involved in politics in both China and the United States. They made important contributions to the war effort in China against Japanese military invasion in the 1930s. Many Chinese American women joined the U.S. military and took jobs in defense industries during World War II. Beginning in the 1970s, a small number of Chinese American women also held important political posts.
