The International Professional Woman's Society welcomes you to the 2022-2023 season kickoff. This will be IPWS’ 30th year as a community organization in Shanghai. This event combines their Annual General Assembly (AGA) with the Thought Activator, a talk where you will meet the trailblazing women of Old Shanghai: feisty iconoclasts who forged new paths in what was still very much a man’s world. Who were they? There was the founder of the Women’s Bank; the American triple agent; the left-wing feminist writer; the businesswoman who ran Old Shanghai’s most famous bordello; the panda explorer; the socialite war correspondent; the doctor; the opium addict writer … and more. Speaker Tina Kanagaratnam Co-founder, Historic Shanghai Tina Kanagaratnam is the co-founder of Historic Shanghai, a heritage group established in 1998 to delve into, and share, the city’s unique, hidden histories ~ on walking tours, in talks, and a book and film club.
