In Dragon Ladies: Asian American Feminists Breathe Fire, prominent Asian American women writers, artists, and activists seize the power of their unique political perspective and cultural background to articulate an Asian American feminist politics and to transform the landscape of race, class, and gender in the United States.

In sixteen critical essays, these writers draw on a wealth of personal experience and cogent analysis of Asian women's relationships to immigration, work, health, domestic violence, spirituality, cultural production, and the media. From the global trade in Asian women workers to the elitism of the white feminist movement, no ground is sacred. These women warrriors don't mince words but speak with fierce conviction and surprising insight.

This book showcases the growing politicization of Asian American women and their emerging feminist movement. It will be a vital contribution to women's and Asian American studies, and a must-read for Asian women and girls everywhere.
