Sarah Mah is a ‘third generation’ Canadian-born Chinese woman raised in Vancouver, BC. Her family was among the early Chinese immigrants levied the head tax in the late 1800’s, as well as those who left rural China in the 1950’s in search of a better life in Canada. Formally trained in genetics and epidemiology and now pursuing a PhD, her feminist activism began as a front-line anti-violence worker at a rape crisis centre and transition house, and she continues her work as a member of the Asian Women Coalition Ending Prostitution.
