About this product
- DescriptionWelcome to the world of the modern Asian American woman, where the willingness to cause trouble -- to stir the waters, think deeply, and go against what is expected -- is the first of many steps to self-discovery and power. Now, Phoebe Eng shatters stereotypes and offers a bold new vision for American-raised daughters like herself. A second-generation eldest daughter, caught between cultures, codes of behavior, and colliding worlds, Eng had to learn that in order to be true to herself, conflict and tough choices were necessary. But with those, she found, came a wonderful payoff: the doors to opportunity flew open. Serving as both guide and mentor, Eng addresses the range of issues Asian American women face, including:
- How can we deal with family expectations?
- What is false power and how do we recognize it in our lives?
- Can we trust one ather?
- How do we build healthy relationships in the face of geisha girl stereotypes?
- How can we find a sense of home ?
