I believe women, particularly women of marginalized identities, are deeply impacted by a world where we too often go unheard, disrespected, and disenfranchised.

To me, feminism is working to correct that erasure by empowering young women — including young Asian-American women — with the tools to express ourselves, the space to be respected for what we have to say, and the encouragement to live our lives unapologetically because of it.

But, I do think I can pinpoint the moment I claimed the title of Asian-American feminist — or, more specifically, I realized that there is a difference between being a feminist and a feminist of color.

There is nothing shameful in being a feminist — feminism is, quite simply, a belief in the political agency of women.
