Quick Staff Writer Note: As someone who’s half-Asian and grew up in a half-Vietnamese household (albeit not Chinese but you get the idea), I still want to point out that gender roles are still very prevalent in some parts of Asian culture and society. Progressive households aren’t the majority. Traditional expectations are still a standard to many. I can’t speak on the other cultures featured in this collection but I can make a small comment about it here. If you’re not from these cultures, please don’t forget to check your biases and aggressions before you ask if they have the potential to make an impact. Thank you! I’m really excited about this project and looking forward to see how it turns out.
