Patsy Takemoto Mink: A Woman of Her Words

This exhibit features the late Hawaiʻi Congresswomen Patsy Takemoto Mink who dedicated her life to civil rights. She advocated to end the Vietnam war and to increase corporate taxes to support education, welfare, and the needs of vulnerable families. She supported and co-authored Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972, allowing for gender equality in higher education and athletics. She was a trailblazing political leader from Paʻia, Maui, Hawaiʻi, and has paved the way for today’s leaders who continue to build on her legacy within the U.S. Congress.

We thank the Hawaiʻi State Public Library for sharing their exhibit panels to be displayed at our Law Library, and Professor Troy Andrade for sharing memorabilia from Patsy Mink's political campaigns.

Here is a video overview of the exhibit that was featured at the University of Hawai'i School of Law Library from March 8 to April 15, 2022.
