Annie Xiong - Week 4 Blog

The reading Radicals on the Road relates to major issues affecting the SEA American community such that they are often overlooked women. For instance, coming from a Hmong family (a woman from the SEA American community), women are not as comparable to men from the SEA American community. Specifically, this is in regards to things that are involved with family and education. When stepping out of our comfort soon, we are seen as being "radical", such as women in this reading who seek activism for peace and liberation.

Current events outside of class that connects to the reading is The Women's March. As I came upon some pieces of the reading, it states that there are women from every where around the world who stand in solidarity despite the war movement such as Asian American, Chicano/a, Latino/a, and indigenous people. These women believed in the profound possibilities of global sisterhood. Thus, the purpose of The Women's March is allow women from the US and globally to march and stand in solidarity despite the fear of the outcomes under Trump's presidency. Not all of the marchers were Mexican, but were from other racial ethnic groups.

Question: Why was it easier for women from different racial groups in the 1960s to stand together than for men to stand together, and in comparison to today's current events?
