Patsy Mink: Ahead of the Majority

Episode 1 of 1

This program explores the life and times of the late U.S. Representative Patsy Takemoto Mink (1927-2002), the first woman of color in Congress and the driving force behind Title IX, the landmark legislation that mandated gender equity in education. While Mink was considered a controversial figure at times, the film aims to provide a balanced view of her politics and actions. More importantly, her life offers a unique window onto the larger story of Hawaii and America in the 20th century, focusing on the nation's shifting attitudes towards gender, race and politics.
