Strong Woman (2001)
Our Indonesian nursemaid standing on her sturdy bare feet, carrying me on her hip. My mother was busy studying at university despite the fact that few girls back then did, and also married my Jewish father against her parents’ wishes. How women in the Japanese internment camp dared to yell at the Japanese guards when they felt these guards were endangering their children.
That’s where the image of strong women came from. Back
