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 eleven and eight. 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 an educator at the University of California, Irvine in the Campus Assault Resources and Education (CARE) office. Previously, I worked for the nonprofit Man Up Campaign as an advocate for women’s and girls’ rights, 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 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. 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 Southern California’s public radio station KPCC.
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 ☺
