Hnub Tshiab: Hmong Women Achieving Together is a catalyst for lasting cultural, institutional, and social change to improve the lives of Hmong women. Hnub Tshiab believes that there must first be awareness and acknowledgement that gender is a powerful force in shaping the lives of the entire community. They believe that all members of the community have a role in patriarchy – members, including women, become complicit through enculturation. They envision a world where Hmong women and girls are valued and supported to achieve their highest potential in all of their roles. They see a society that honors the choices that Hmong women make and celebrates their ability to direct their own destinies.
