By the early 1950s, Chinese Canadians were exercising their right to vote, after being
granted citizenship in 1947.  Chinese-Canadian women, however, continued to encounter not only racial but gender bias.  Women were still largely relegated to the sidelines of society and confined to roles of wife, mother and daughter.
There were exceptions, however. Learn more about six Vancouver Chinese women who,
between the 1950s and 1980s, broke the mould and forged new ground in the areas of work,community and sports.
