May 26, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 26! Patsy Mink was an Asian Pacific American hero of so many causes. Although she is best known for her work and championing of Title IX, she also supported environmental issues, women’s rights, immigrant rights, and more. In today’s mid-week interview, we had the pleasure of talking to Judy Tzu-Chun Wu and Wendy Mink, the co-authors of the amazing biography Fierce and Fearless: Patsy Takemoto Mink, First Woman of Color in Congress. It was enlightening to be able to hear some first-hand stories from Wendy who is Patsy Mink’s daughter. To find copies of this incredible biography, you can go to any online book seller or get it from the publisher NYU Press.
