Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's "Womenomics" campaign is meant to promote better conditions for women who work. Can Japan unleash the economic power of women to revitalize its economy? How large might the "Womenomics" dividend be? What lessons can Japan borrow from the rest of the world or offer other countries facing similar challenges? The Asia Society Policy Institute is pleased to present a discussion of these questions by a panel of distinguished experts: Carol Gluck of Columbia University, Director Emeritus of McKinsey & Co. Joanna Barsh, Naoko Ogawa of Keidanren, and moderator Henny Sender of the Financial Times.

Bar's 'Fresh Off the Boat' Screenings Gives Locals a Chance to Bond
By Lisha Arino on March 4, 2015 1:32pm  

CHINATOWN - Jenny Ye has her Tuesday nights planned out for the next few weeks.

Ye is one of about a dozen locals who have been meeting up at Asia Roma, a bar located at 40 Mulberry St., to watch "Fresh Off the Boat," a new ABC sitcom that features the first Asian-American family on primetime TV in 20 years.


"We're here every week," she said while hanging out with her friend, Vincent Fang, who works in the neighborhood.


"We're all starting to get to know the bartenders," Fang added. About 10 to 20 people have been visiting the Mulberry Street bar each week since the show's Feb. 4 premiere as a way to support the show and socialize, attendees said.  Continue Reading... 


Downtown Art define the Lower East Side by its traditional definition - which includes the East Village, Chinatown, Little Italy, Loisaida, and Two Bridges.  This community has survived many challenges - and is attempting to weather the change and displacement going on now.  By celebrating the character and history of our community, we can also engage in dialogue about its future direction.

Last May, for the first LES History Month, more than 60 cultural and community groups developed activities to celebrate.  This year they'd like to include you as well.

*Possible ways to participate:*

*CHALK/LES:  Friday, May 1:* Volunteers will be chalking local history on neighborhood sidewalks across the Lower East Side.  Join us and chalk history around your school!  Email Ryan at ryan@downtownart.org for more details.

*TAKE A LOCAL FIELD TRIP*: It's a great time to learn from a cultural or historical group in the neighborhood.  Eat lunch at a restaurant offering foods from a local culture.  For ideas, you can check our website for
participating groups.
