Rosie and Me
I’m not sure why I’m gritting my teeth. She’s not. (At the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Homefront National Historical Park in Richmond, California)

Hi, I’m Eugene Hung, and I really appreciate your taking the time to visit with me here! My wife and I live in Southern California, and we’re the proud parents of two Asian American daughters, ages twelve and nine. My experiences with my girls and my advocacy on their behalf provide the fodder for my commentary on parenting, gender, feminism, race, and culture.

In addition to authoring this blog, I’m currently freelancing as a writer and public speaker on those same issues. But I’m definitely seeking a position to continue my vocational work in both stopping relationship and sexual violence and advancing gender equality. I recently completed a contract job as an educator at the University of California, Irvine in the Campus Assault Resources and Education (CARE) office. Previously, I also worked for the nonprofit Man Up Campaign as a movement organizer and the digital communications manager, and before that, I served as a church minister. Once upon a time, way back in the mid-1990s, I was a public high school teacher.

Most of my previous posts, columns, and articles appeared at AsianceMagazine.com, which hosted my Raising Asian American Daughters blog, and FindingBalance.com, the website for an excellent organization which supports folks struggling with body image and disordered eating issues. I’ve also written for HuffPost, Sojourners, Christians for Biblical Equality, 8Asians.com, ThickDumplingSkin.com, CatalyticWomen.com, and the National Park Service. In Southern California, I’ve been a featured speaker for Cal State Long Beach, Biola University, and UN Women-Los Angeles, as well as a recurring guest on public radio station KPCC. I’m also available for traveling gigs; this fall, I’ll be returning to the East Coast for the fourth time as a featured speaker.

The best way to contact me is over social media (see icons on this site); I respond fastest to Twitter. I hope your time here is insightful and heartwarming! I look forward to learning from you, too ☺
