AbstractIn lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Notes 1. Making Waves: An Anthology of Writings by and about Asian American Women is a collection of essays edited by Asian Women United of California, and published by Beacon Press (1989). Sucheng Chan's article appears in Entry Denied: Exclusion and the Chinese Community in America, 1882-1943 (Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 1991), pp. 94-146. 2. One of the most impressive studies on Chinese immigrant women can be found in Lucie Cheng Hirata's 'Free, Indentured, Enslaved: Chinese Prostitutes in Nineteenth Century America,' Signs (Autumn 1979): 3-29. Tong's research moves in a different direction from Hirata's work, as his efforts are concerned with the women's experiences rather than the economic consequences of Chinese prostitution. 3. Tong notes that section 16 of the Civil Rights Act of 1870 mandated the right to testify in court. [Abstract from Project MUSE]
