Joanna Chiu's Biography

Joanna Chiu is an independent journalist from Vancouver, Canada, where she founded the WAM! (Women, Action & the Media) Vancouver chapter. Joanna works to connect Canadian activists and media makers to advance women's media participation, ownership and representation.

Her writing on feminism, politics, social movements, racism and sexuality appears in publications such as The Nation, AlterNet, RH Reality Check, The UTNE Reader, The Georgia Straight, and rabble.ca

As a columnist for Canada's most popular feminist magazine, Herizons, she provides her perspective on Canadian politics and culture in each quarterly issue. She has also provided media commentary for outlets such as Vancouver's News 1130 Radio, Jezebel, The Village Voice, and Toronto's CIUT Radio.

Joanna holds a B.A.(Hons.) in East Asian History at the University of British Columbia, and a Masters of Science degree at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where she focused on foreign correspondence.

At WIMN's Voices, Joanna blogs about the misrepresentation and lack of representation of Asian people in the media. This summer, Joanna will be joining the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong, and she will contribute media analysis for WIMN from Hong Kong from a cross-cultural perspective.
