Patsy Mink remembered by three female Democrats

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:



The late U.S. Rep. Patsy Mink was honored on today by three women who have followed her path.

On the 10th anniversary of Mink’s death in 2002, U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono, U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa and Honolulu City Councilwoman Tulsi Gabbard remembered the liberal icon as a tireless fighter for equal rights.

The event was held near a baseball diamond at Ala Wai Park in recognition of Mink’s signature achievement: Title IX, a 1972 provision in federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in college academics and sports.
