Women's History Month | Honoring chief plaintiff Mitsuye Endo

This year, Women's History Month is "celebrating women who tell our stories." Recognizing this theme, Duke Law faculty and students are sharing about the women in the law who are telling their stories in this weekly video series throughout the month of March.

Here, Duke Law Clinical Professor Aya Fujimura-Fanselow, supervising attorney for the International Human Rights Clinic at Duke Law, shares how she is inspired by the bravery and tenacity of Mitsuye Endo, the chief plaintiff in the landmark 1944 U.S. Supreme Court ex parte decision. The Court's ruling led to the reopening of the West Coast to Japanese Americans after their incarceration in camps across the U.S. interior during World War II.
