Cultural theorists have discussed the status of Asian women in a globalized world, as victims or as the under represented in the globalization process. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak emphasizes the importance of women‘s roles in an abusive global world while Arjun Appadurai focuses on Asian women being voluntarily and involuntarily traded within the globalization process. Most of these arguments evolve around the context of the victims or the unprivileged woman.
IWAB is soliciting your stories or experiences with or as Asian women living in Asia or anywhere in the world. We believe that there are multiple aspects to the rapidly changing Asian women’s lives, from women being empowered, entitled to women being ignored. IWAB wishes to collect your narratives as a woman/artist/professional/student, and to share them with audiences throughout the world hoping to create a better understanding for the women of the world.
