Meet the "Chinese Joan of Arc," Qiu Jin (1875 - 1907), a radical women's rights activist who defied tradition to become the leader of a revolutionary army. Qiu Jin boldly challenged traditional gender roles and emerged as a national heroine who redefined what it meant to be a woman in early 20th-century China.

Join us for a free screening and Q-&-A with filmmakers Rae Chang and Adam Tow.
Sponsored by the Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies,
Institute for Asian Studies, and Confucius Institute.
