A Feminist’s Fight for Taiwan

Annette Lu
Civics

Annette Lu’s powerful memoir tells Taiwan’s political history through her personal story, from impoverished beginnings as a shopkeeper’s daughter to her eventual election as Vice President of Taiwan. Surviving cancer and imprisonment, Lu became the first female Vice President of Taiwan in 2000, the signal achievement in her quest for gender equality, human, rights, and political reform. My Fight for a New Taiwan: One Woman’s Journey from Prison to Power is Lu’s story so far, as she continues her political work even now, running for the office of mayor in Taipei and as President of the environmentally-focused Green 21 Taiwan Alliance.

Presented by: Town Hall in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company and World Affairs Council, as part of the Civics series. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True-Brown Foundation. Series media sponsorship provided by The Stranger and KUOW.
Tickets: $5.
