Don’t miss the San Francisco premiere of “The Escape” and “Rescued Memories: New York Stories” at the de Young Museum! These two new interdisciplinary works are companion pieces inspired by stories of women who had become vulnerable upon arrival into the U.S. during the early 20th Century. They seek to shed light on the experiences of these women in the context of the social history of the period for Chinese in America as well as for women in the society as a whole with the struggles and achievements of the 20th Century Women’s Movement, which took on such issues as child labor and human trafficking. CHSA is proud to be a Community Partner for these presentations.
