“I wanted to fly, so that’s what I did.” Katherine Sui Fun Cheung
She was the first Chinese-American woman to become a licensed pilot; she earned her license in 1932, when only 1% of licensed pilots in America were female. Cheung was known for her breathtaking stunts, such as flying upside down in an open cockpit.

As an Asian American filmmaker, I wanted to discover the inner strength of the Asian American women in Gund Kwok dragon and lion dancing troupe, where these group of women push their boundaries and keep their culture & identity at the same time. ~Mei Lei, filmaker

For the past few weeks, CHSNE have put up a wonderful banner display and posters illustrating the timeline of the history of Boston’s Chinatown.
The women’s lion dance troupe fact definitely caught our attention.
Boston’s first women’s lion dance troupe was organized to participate in fund-raising from the Chinese community to assist China in its defense during the Sino-Japanese War. The entire troupe consisted of eight girls, most of whom were only 11-12 years old.
