Tomorrow morning we will be have a convo about Asian American Feminism with hashtag #NotYourAsianSidekick.

For days, Asian-American feminists, myself included, felt like we were witnessing something extraordinary unfold.

We’re living in a world where the stereotype of Asians as the “model minority” — so retro yet still ubiquitous — allows people to tell me, point-blank, that Asian women don’t experience poverty or domestic violence.

As Reappropriate, an Asian-American blog pointed out, “#NotYourAsianSidekick demonstrates that our ideas as Asian American feminists are out there, under the surface, waiting to be heard.

But it is also fitting that according to its website, #NotYourAsianSidekick has plans to take this beyond Twitter.
