RED: VOLUME I
Stereotypes: Dragon lady, submissive. exotic, sex nymph, obedient. Words that have been attributed to Asian women through portrayals in the media.
SHE: Dominant, decisive, hard-working, independent, matriarch. She dismisses the stereotypes that have continued since the days of Ling Woo and Licia Albanese (who should have never played an Asian woman to begin with). A fierce competitor in the workplace who is analytical and decisive. She pushes against the assumption that all Asian women are soft-spoken and compliant.
She is RED.
The photo-editorial is also paired with a series of diary entries by asian-american contributors that have chosen to share their experiences. To read more, click here.
