As we approach 2020, the centennial of women’s suffrage, join MOCA and the Tenement Museum as we take a look at pivotal policies that shaped the experiences of Chinese American women at different points in time.


Explore the galleries of With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America to see what exclusion—de facto and de jure—looked like for Chinese American women, and how it affected ideas of gender identity, family, and community. Through an exploration of primary sources and oral histories, we’ll then examine the immigration and emergence of Chinese American women as a critical force in NYC’s Chinatown garment industry. Come away with ways to bring these vital HERstories into your classroom.


Registration: $25/participant. Click here to register. Coffee and light lunch will be served. Includes 5 hours of CTLE credit.
