2B: "Geisha Entertainers," Portland News-Telegram,
29 April 1938.
Ko Kwuzuka and Rose Katigiri, who will be among the entertainers
at the silver tea which Japanese Girl Reserves will give Sunday
at the YWCA.
caption of this Portland News-Telegram photograph, "Geisha
Entertainers," highlights the exoticized and sexualized stereotypes
assigned to Asian-American women in the mainstream U.S. media, in
contrast to the Japanese language newspaper article above, which emphasized
