Patsy Mink was the first Asian American women elected to Congress. She co-authored the Title IX Amendment of the Higher Education Amendment, which requires equal financing for women's sports and education programs that receive funds from the federal government.

Here is a quote from the Hawaiian Congresswoman: "What you endure is who you are. And if you just accept and do nothing, then life goes on, but if you see it as a way for change, life doesn't have to be so unfair. It can be better. Maybe not for me, I can't change the past, but I can certainly help somebody else in the future so they don't have to go through what I did."
