More Than Meets the Eye: How Gender and Sex Intersect with Radicalized Violence Against Asian Americans
May 26, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Free event co-sponsored by the California Lawyers Association
Hosted by Asian Pacific American Women Lawyers Alliance and California Asian Pacific American Bar Association
Anti-Asian violence is not new — it has permeated the entire history of Asians in the U.S. But the wave of anti-Asian violence during the past year has found Asian American women in the bulls-eye, including the horrific shootings in Atlanta. Join our expert panelists as we explore some of the complex issues surrounding the intersection of race, gender, and sex, including how the legal system has failed to account for racialized violence against Asian American women, how misogyny is inseparable from racism against Asian American women, how the sexualization of Asian American men and women plays a role in anti-Asian violence, and more.
