Chin Yu Hsu – Taiwan

She works for the Gu Jinliang Cultural Foundation.

Hsu Chin Yu grew up in Taiwan during the period of the Japanese colonization. In the White Terror period in the 1950s, when many intellectuals, workers and peasants were charged as spies, communist bandits and traitors, she entered a reading club, and took part in the labor movement. Later she was arrested and imprisoned for 15 years, which changed her life. (Read all on 1000peacewomen).
