Celebrating Faith Evans, former Hawaii State Representative. We interviewed Mrs. Evans in late 2013 and she passed away January 9, 2014. She handed us files of papers and photos and said she was waiting for the right person to hand them to.

During our interview, Mrs. Evans was still as fiery and passionate about women's rights than ever. It was as if no wheelchair, age, or confrontation would stop her from getting back into the fight. Her distaste of inequality and those perpetrating it was extremely evident.

She's one of the forgotten women leaders of history. She filed a lawsuit against the University of Hawaii in 1976 to "encourage" them to come into compliance with the regulations of Title IX and provide money. Her bold stand did not make her very popular, but she was a major force, opening doors of opportunity wider and faster than expected for multitudes of female athletes.

Happy Birthday to Patsy Mink, co-author & sponsor of #TitleIX, officially renamed the "Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act" after her passing in 2002.

She is a legend in politics, education, and female athletics because of her work and she is someone we are proud to highlight in our documentary, "Rise of the Wahine." Everyone in America, especially women athletes, need to know who she is and her story.
