To mark Women’s History Month, the Asian Collection Highlights exhibit is showcasing literature anthologies of works by woman writers in East Asia. Covering multiple genres of literature from 1600 through the 1990’s, the anthologies in this exhibit are a small sample of the wealth of works in the Chin Ying Asian Library that observe and analyze the growth and development of women’s voices and representation in the modern international context.

As with all Asian Collection Highlights exhibits, items on display may be removed from the display case upon request and perused in-library or checked out. Previous installations of the Asian Collection Highlights Exhibit have included: Literary Classics and Visual Arts in Japan, the Wang Guanying Gift, the Soong Sisters (for the 2013 observance of Women’s History Month), and Buddhist Art in East Asia.
