Describe how Chinese women experienced life in America.

This week we focused on two different groups of women, white women and Chinese women in California during and after the Gold Rush. Your discussion for this week must compare and contrast the different experiences that these two groups of women had in the Golden State. I understand this will not be a perfect comparison because our first learning unit focused on white women during the Gold Rush, and our second learning unit focused on Chinese women after the Gold Rush has already passed. In your first paragraph, please describe how white women experienced lift out West during the Gold Rush. In order to answer this question, please use all three of the posted sources: the video, the Dame Shirly primary document, and the Chronicle article. You may either use direct quotes, or paraphrase, but you must cite those sources at the bottom of your original post (due by Friday). In your second paragraph, please describe how Chinese women experienced life in America.
