|Summary:||In 1965, Asian American Patsy Takemoto Mink became the first woman of color in the United States Congress. Seven years later, she ran for the US presidency and was the driving force behind Title IX, the landmark legislation that transformed women's opportunities in higher education and athletics. Seldom spotlighted in history books, Mink fought racism and sexism, and dared to remain "ahead of the majority" as her beliefs enabled groundbreaking changes for the rights of the disenfranchised. A woman of the people as well as a pioneer, a patriot and an outcast, Patsy Mink's intriguing story embodies the history, ideals, and spirit of America.|
