Fall Down Seven Times, Stand Up Eight: Patsy Takemoto Mink and the Fight for Title IX

From a young age, Patsy Takemoto Mink learned that striving for goals came with challenges. But she also learned to never give up. As the Japanese proverb says: fall down seven times, stand up eight. That spirit helped Patsy through school. She wanted to become a doctor, but at the time, medical schools didn’t admit women. So Patsy carved her own path.

She went to law school, ran for a seat in the United States Congress, and helped create Title IX, the law that requires federally funded schools to treat boys and girls equally. Although many people tried to knock her down, Patsy — a historic trailblazer who spent her life fighting for fairness — always got up again!

From award-winning author Jen Bryant and illustrator Toshiki Nakamura comes an inspiring picture book biography of the first Asian American woman elected to Congress that brings Patsy Takemoto Mink’s incredible legacy to life.
