About the Event

Congresswoman Patsy T. Mink (1927-2002) was a vigorous and tireless champion of women's rights, an early and vocal opponent of the Vietnam War, and a leader on issues involving education, the environment, welfare, and civil rights. Mink was the first woman of color and the first Asian American woman to serve in Congress. She represented the people of Hawaii  from 1965 to 1977 and again from 1990 until her death in 2002.  She is best remembered for her role in helping to secure passage of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and its companion legislation, the 1974 Women’s Educational Equity Act(WEEA). 

Presented by SCC member MARY SEGERS, Ph.D
